Arkansas’ Jurassic Past with Geologist John David McFarland

Wednesday 16th | 2pm | 

Most of Arkansas’ fossils are of marine animals, but the fossilized bones of a dinosaur dating back more than 100 million years ago have also been found. John David McFarland, retired Chief Geologist with both the U.S. Geological Survey and the Arkansas Geological Survey, will present an in-depth look at our state’s diverse geological past. McFarland, who has published more than 60 abstracts, articles, photographs, guidebooks and reports on Arkansas, will also bring a collection of fossils to view. He is the brother of BTV resident Linda Pinkerton.
