BELFAST, ME: “Glaciation in Earth History” is the subject of a talk at the monthly meeting of the Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition, to be held on Thursday, October 18 at 6:30 PM in the Belfast Free Library.

Sid Quarrier, retired supervising geologist of the Geological Survey of Connecticut, and a resident of mid-coast Maine, will speak on Maine’s glacial history as part of global history. Glaciers of the last million years are part of a long tradition in Earth’s history.
