Geology of Morris Island

Leader: Dave Forsyth

Meet: Morris Island Conservation Area, 156 Morris Island Drive

We will look at marble mineralogy, the glacial legacy (the best pothole specimens anywhere) and metamorphic structures. How has this geology affected glacial processes and the present day forest and aquatic habitats? You may find it helpful to look over the information on our website, beforehand, about the geology of the island. On the homepage, see “More Information”, “Macnamara Trail”, “Geology Field Guides”.
