Join MMA’s Dr. Rich Blundell on this 4.6km (2.9 mile) walk through the history of planet Earth, each stride will account for approximately one million years of natural history. Along the way we will stop to explore the major thresholds of geologic time and draw on the local setting whenever possible to help tell the story. Come ambulate and contemplate the established, scientific understandings and also reconsider how the events and processes of deep time have led to our current global predicament. By considering the broader scales of life on Earth we will gain new insights to reinterpret the science in more meaningful ways.
This walk is a Nantucket Biodiversity Initiative Science Showcase Event.
This event meets at: Gardner Farm, 181 Hummock Pond Rd, Nantucket, MA 02554, USA
