Jeri Jones, a local geologist with a specialty in geoarchaeology and the owner of Jones Geological Services in Spring Grove, will answer this and other fascinating questions at the East Berlin Historical Preservation Society’s general meeting in January. Historians with a particular interest in the Civil War can look forward to the answer to another question Jones poses, “Was the Battle of Gettysburg affected by geology?”
Through his PowerPoint program, Jones will also explore this area’s formation and the amazing northern movement of East Berlin over time. He will also highlight mineral resources, fossils, and rock types in the area.
Jeri Jones has recently published a book titled, Isabella and Trent’s Hot Air Balloon Adventure – A Kid’s Book of Pennsylvania Geology. He will have copies of his book available for purchase.
