Geology students from Drammen High School visit the Geopark
Wednesday 27 May 2009
About 30 students from Drammen High School chose the Geopark for their geology excursion.
They started their tour on Rognstranda and got an introduction into the crystalline basement, transition to Cambro-Silurian rocks and the botany on the top of the limestone pine forest. The most eager of them also got to see a glimpse of the squid fossils in the Huk Formation, and got to experience how much easier it is to see fossils and structures in the rock if one wets the bedrock first.
Delicious baguettes and refreshing ice tea were consumed at the grill place for lunch.
Thereafter they boarded the bus and went to Mølen to hear about the ravaging of the Ice Age.
They were an exemplary gang with the geology students in their graduation party outfits!
