Geology & Paleontology of Southwestern Utah - Lecture by Dr. Jerry Harris

Rocks in southwestern Utah span a vast amount of time and are a largely untapped paleontological resource. Many of the rock layers contain - or likely contain - fossils that have been virtually unexplored. Come join DSU geology professor Jerry Harris to learn about the work of geology, paleontology, and what you might see if you keep your eyes open while enjoying southwestern Utah's fabulous scenery!
