Sweet Arrow Lake Geology Walk Announced

A Geology Walk of Sweet Arrow Lake in Pine Grove Township has been announced by the Schuylkill Conservation District.

Join Jeri Jones of Jones Geological Services on Tuesday, July 11th, 2023, at 7:00pm for a casual walk on some of the trails of the park to understand the rocks that lie beneath your feet. 

You will be amazed to discover that a vast ocean once made up this area. Later continental collisions pushed up and broke the crust. Ever think why the lake is so straight? Participants will learn that answer. 

Participants will also examine the stream below the dam and find older channels where the stream once flowed.

Those interested in joining should meet at the Waterfall Pavilion.
