The Sharon Formation at Little Mountain

Date: Saturday, October 10, 2015, 9 am–12 noon

Little Mountain, the most famous of the Sharon outliers in northern Ohio, is of both historic and geologic interest, and our leaders will discuss both aspects. We have made special arrangements with Holden Arboretum to visit this site.

Leaders: David Saja, Cleveland Museum of Natural History and Pat Biliter, US Army Corps of Engineers, retired, and Holden Arboretum volunteer

Meeting place: The Warren H. Corning Visitor Center of Holden Arboretum, 9500 Sperry Road, Kirtland, OH

(Go to Google Maps and put in “Holden Arboretum 9500 Sperry Road” for a map, and go to the Arboretum website for directions to the Warren Corning Visitor Center at: )

Meet at the main entrance to the Warren Corning Visitor Center of Holden Arboretum at 9 am sharp. We have special permission to visit this site; when you arrive at the parking lot by the Warren Corning Visitor Center, let the attendant at the gate know you are on a complimentary field trip. We will be traveling to Little Mountain after a short orientation at the Visitor Center.

There is no fee for this field trip. BUT if you are coming with more than 1 other person please e-mail Joe Hannibal the number of people at least three days in advance: [email protected] (There is a slight possibility that we may need to limit the numbers so please e-mail early if you are coming with more than 1 additional person to be sure we can accommodate you.) Also if you have not paid your NOGS dues, this would be a convenient time to do so.
