Bates geologists to lead Great Falls field trips

Geologists are offering an unusual opportunity to explore the 420-million-year geological history so dramatically displayed in the rock outcroppings of the Great Falls here in Lewiston. Led by the Bates College geology department during Earth Science Week (Oct. 11-17), a series of field trips also will examine the significant role played by the falls in the settlement and development of the Lewiston-Auburn area.
