Learn about the fascinating geology of Pickaway County and the Scioto River valley south of Columbus. Our presenter, Andy Nash, Geologist with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geological Survey will start with a general overview of the geology in the local area. A specialist in glacial geology, he will focus on many of the glacial features visible in todays landscapes.
Andy will point out some of the prominent and remarkable glacial landmarks you may drive past everyday such as potholes, moraines and eskers. Glacial features at several AOA preserves will be highlighted: bedrock controlled topography at the Barr family’s Snake Den Mounds; kettle potholes and till plain at the Bartley Preserve; and the Bloomingburg moraine and river valley features near the confluence of Scippo Creek and the Scioto River where AOA has several conserved properties.
