Glacial Geology of the Lake Sunapee Region - William Balsam

  • The Fells 456 Route 103A Newbury, NH, 03255 (map)

Imagine one to two miles of ice sitting on top of New England. This was what New Hampshire looked like 15,000 years ago! Come the The Fells to learn about glacial lakes, erratics, eskers, and drumlins, which are features of our post-glacial landscape. William Balsam, retired geology professor from Dartmouth College and resident of Warner, NH, returns to The Fells to lead us through a presentation of the glacial geological history and makeup of the Lake Sunapee region. This presentation will be followed by a road trip to view a few outstanding geologic features of the area surrounding The Fells.
