Meg Riestenberg, who has taught Geology and Biology classes at the Mount for over 30 years, will tell us some highlights of the Geology of our local area. The Greater Cincinnati area is world-famous for its 450 million-year-old Ordovician bedrock and fossils, as one can easily see when driving through the magnificent road-cuts in northern Kentucky. But the much more recent Ice Age has presented us with an invaluable legacy: deep-cut valleys, economically important gravels, extensive aquifers, superior farmland, and more!
