Meet at Alumni House


Take part in a unique hike and learning opportunity with faculty from the Department of Geography, Environment & Geomatics. Hear from Dr. Jaclyn Cockburn on how rivers shape the Earth’s surface and how human activity augments these forces. With a short drive from the U of Guelph campus, you can step back in time to feel the enormity of the glacial meltwater that was needed to carve out the gorge and spot fossils from the ancient sea that existed 420 million years ago, before the Great Lakes were even a puddle! Strap on your hiking boots and get ready to feel like a student again on this exciting field trip.

Note that the hike will involve some rough terrain, including a steep descent by stairs into the gorge. Appropriate footwear required.

Registration is $5 per person

Maximum of 25 registrants! Please meet at Alumni House to board the bus.

REGISTRATION OPEN!
