Join us on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 7:30 pm,  for 

"Hidden in the Rocks: After the Continents Collided" 

a presentation about Conway's geology by resident amateur geologist Robert Nowak, who's spent years closely studying the components and formations of his rocky Whately Road hillside.  Bob will present a short scientific history of Conway's landscape. His property was evidently the site of at least one 1700s mine, at a time when new settlers prospected for minerals, gemstones, and/or silver.  This was decades before the Rev. Edward Hitchcock brought his early, avid interest in the young science of mineralogy to town as a resident minister and part-time explorer of Conway's deforested terrain. 

Refreshemnts will be served.
