EAU CLAIRE -- The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Arts and Sciences Continuing Education office will sponsor a field workshop to investigate geologic forces and factors that shaped landscape of the Chippewa Valley.

Karen Havholm, assistant professor of geology, will lead the workshop titled "At the Beach, In Eau Claire?" The workshop is open to anyone interested in local geology. Participants will learn how a geologist uses clues in the rocks and sediments to tell the history of the earth, using logic to progress from observations to interpretation. The trip will include exposures of Cambrian and Precambrian rocks and deposits formed during glacial times.

The workshop will run from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11, and will meet in Phillips Science Hall Room 117. Vans will depart from Phillips parking lot. The cost is $12 and includes transportation.
