Brownie Badge Day at the Nature Center
From Rhiannon, Troop 597
My favorite part about the event was sitting by the old river bed. I learned lots about BUGS. When we went hiking, I saw skeletons of deer and turtles. I’m glad I went because I learned so much. I would love to spend time their again!
From Tony Hicks, Geology Professor at Central Texas College.
This excursion for our geology classes was an exceptional addition to our courses. The contact between the Town Mountain Granite and the Packsaddle Schist (unearthed during the floods of 2007) yields a view into the Precambrian eon and gives a much more intriguing example than can be viewed in any text. Additionally, the hike to Reveille Peak traverses the Valley Springs Gneiss and offers a terrific high vantage of the fantastic Central Texas geology and the Llano Uplift. Bravo to the staff for helping with this field trip!
