How Geology Has Shaped Your Favorite Mountains and Waterfalls

April 1, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Bill Jacobs is the author of “Whence These Special Places? The Geology of Cashiers, Highlands & Panthertown Valley,” a book that explains the geological processes of more than 500 million years that formed the complex geology of the southern Blue Ridge mountains.

His presentation will explain the dramatic upheavals that created the Blue Ridge as a whole, and look individually at many notable waterfalls and mountains throughout our area, generously illustrated. For this program, he will discuss locations across SW North Carolina, including such iconic features as Looking Glass Rock and Falls, Shining Rock, Devil’s Courthouse, Craggy Pinnacle, and Pearson’s and Little Bearwallow Falls, as well as several unique features on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau (especially in Panthertown Valley).

We all have our own special places in these mountains. Come learn how they came to be. Preregistration is required. A return email will provide the link needed to join.
