‘Three new Geo-Trails in the Westmorland Dales area’ – Breaking News from Cumbria GeoConservation to Cumberland Geological Society. Sylvia Woodhead
Spreading the word: an introduction to geology in and around Keswick. Chris Wilson
During the first lock down I started writing this introduction which is based on material that I use with my Skiddaw U3A geology group. I had hoped to make it available so that local people could use it to learn more about the local area whilst out on their daily exercise. The good weather at the time thwarted completion as I spent a lot of time out walking or gardening. When I eventually finished the guide I then thought about how I should try to promote it. I will show a few parts of the guide and explain the steps I took for it to be posted on several tourism websites and led to an article in the current issue of Cumbria Life. I hope this will encourage members to consider how to promote the public understanding of geology in the areas in which they live.
We anticipate finishing by 9pn.
This meeting will be open to members only. Information on how to join will be emailed to members.
