03-18-2019: David Williams—Seattle Building Field Trip

Seattle Building Stone

Geology Field Trip to Seattle;
Monday, March 18, 2019

David Williams, author of Stories in Stone (and a Geology Group lecturer on March 2, 2013) has offered to lead a small group or two on a walking tour of Seattle Building Stone. We’ll see all types of rock used in Seattle’s historic buildings and will learn about the geology and history of the stone and its use. This is a very popular walking tour and has been recently updated from his previous walks.  More information about this tour can be found on David’s webpage.

He can accommodate 15 persons per tour and the price is $20 per person (based on 15 persons).  We will meet at the Bainbridge Ferry around 10 am, walk on, and meet him in lower downtown.  The tour takes about two hours, but you could continue your stay (lunch, shopping) in Seattle or return on the ferry. Registrants’ names and contact information may be shared to facilitate carpooling from home to the ferry.

The date of the field trip is Monday, March 18.  Meet-up time at Bainbridge is about 10 am (details to follow to registrants). The cost will be $20 per person, payable with your registration form. Registration will be accepted on a first come-first served basis.
