How the Geology of Bowman’s Hill Influences Our Environment – Jan. 31 – WLS 2021
Join local geologist Phil Getty on a virtual tour of the geology in and around Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve. Learn how Bowman Hill’s unique geology was formed and the influence that bedrock has on nature, as well as humans. This lecture will enable you to understand how geology directly controls topography and soils to create the hill’s unique plant, animal and aquatic ecosystems.
Phil Getty has consulted as an environmental hydrogeologist in the Bucks County area for 40 years. The professional geologist holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in geology from Pennsylvania State and West Virginia universities. He has served on the boards of the Peace Valley Nature Center and Bucks County Audubon Society, as well as taught at Delaware Valley University. He also has advised land conservation associations, such as the Heritage Conservancy, on natural resources. In addition, Getty has presented numerous geology classes and field trips for naturalists, nature centers and the general public, with the goal of increasing our awareness of the land beneath our feet.
