Popular demand: Friends of Red Rock schedule 2nd Geology Talk and Walk

       After a scheduled Geology Talk and Walk proved so popular that it filled up almost immediately in early August, the event-sponsoring Friends of Red Rock Canyon pledged to set up another one as soon as possible.
       The result of those efforts is the second Geology Talk and Walk this month at the Pavilion in Red Rock Canyon Open Space. It will be Thursday, Aug. 14, starting at 5:30 p.m.
       The presenter will be Mark Izold, a professor at Pikes Peak Community College. He will be talking about “geologic features which indicate how Red Rock Canyon was formed,” a press release states. “This Talk and Walk will cover the Palezoic to Mesozoic history and geology of the open space.”
       The event, which will include a presentation followed by a guided walk to the places talked about, is another in a series this summer hosted by the Friends of Red Rock Canyon.
       The presentation is free. Advance signups are necessary at friends@redrockcanyonopenspace.org or 685-4792.
