Earth Systems 3209 – Historical Geology
This program takes place at both the Interpretation Centre and along the river trail.
It is divided into three sections: Talking about Geological Time, Experiencing Geological Time
and Creating Geological Time.
“Talking about Geological Time” takes place in the Exhibits where the students will experience a
virtual tour through the geological history of Manuels River. Some major components will be
defined and explained in this section of the program.
“Experiencing Geological Time” takes place along the downstream portion of the river trail
system. In this section, students will get the opportunity to see, firsthand, the geological
evidence of Manuels River’s history. They will also see some examples of the integral
components previously discussed.
“Creating Geological Time” takes place in the Discovery Room where students will be asked to
work together to recreate the geological history of Manuels River using a timeline model.
Should the weather not be ideal, the program will be adapted and take place entirely in the
Interpretation Centre.
