Geologist Dr. James Vernon is a noted speaker who has spent a good part of his professional career examining the geology of New Hampshire and interpreting the history that presents itself. On Thursday, December 3rd at 7PM, Dr. Vernon will present Geology of the White Mountains in the Tin Mountain Conservation Center Coleman Great Room at the Center on Bald Hill Road in Albany, NH.
