Litchfield County ROCKS!
The story of Litchfield County’s geology is action-packed with lots of chapters. This program provides an overview of why the northwestern Connecticut landscape looks the way it does today, covering topics ranging from hill formation during Pangea to more “recent” glaciation. Students will also learn what our most common rock and mineral types are in the area, and how to identify them in their own yards.
