Description

The Anthropo-what?!? Many of us know the names of at least some geological epochs, but our current time period is in a class all its own. If these rocks could talk, they would tell us about 600 million years of Salem’s geological history. In the past, changes occurred slowly, over millions of years. Now, humans are drastically speeding up the process. Find out how you are leaving your mark on Salem’s geology today, for future generations.
