Have a rock that needs identifying? Want to learn more about the geology of Santa Cruz? Like digging for fossils? Join Gavin and Graham — also known as our «Geology Gents» — for our monthly rock-talk days. Every fourth Saturday of the month, these PhD students from UC Santa Cruz will be at the Museum, ready to ID your local (or not-so-local) geologic finds, and show off a rotating collection of specimens. So get ready to talk shop with these rock jocks!

10 a.m. — 12 p.m. | Great for all ages | Free with admission: $4 General | $2 Students/Seniors | FREE 18 & Under

_______________________________

About our Geology Gents: Graham Edwards and Gavin Piccione are PhD students in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at UC Santa Cruz.

«I use the scientific tools of geochronology-the study and measurement of time in geologic materials- to answer geologic question about the ages of glaciers, the cooling of Earth’s crust over billions of years, and the earliest stages of our solar system when rocky meteorites formed.» —Graham Edwards

«My decision to become a geologist comes from a deep interest in how the Earth has changed through time and why it has evolved the way it did. My primary research interest is to reconstruct timelines of geologic events by finding the age of rocks. Much like a historian traces events and creates a timeline of human, I seek to use age measurements of rocks to trace the evolution of the Earth.»—Gavin Piccione
