The Oxley Creek Catchment Group invites you to their general meeting on Tuesday 27 August.
As part of the meeting, Warwick Willmott will present a talk on the truly dramatic processes that generated each of the major rock groups of our region.
These range from an ancient subduction zone off the edge of the continent through vast rivers on inland plains, to a series of volcanoes like those in the Hawaiian Islands.
An understanding of these past events helps us to better interpret our present surroundings.
Warwick Willmott is a geologist who worked with the Geological Survey of Queensland on geological mapping, resource investigations and geological hazards for urban areas. He likes to bring geology to the public and has written booklets and leaflets in a Rocks and Landscape series for the Geological Society of Australia, as well as giving talks to various groups.
The meeting will be held at the Oxley Creek Common, 428 Sherwood Road, Rocklea, commencing at 5.30pm for a 6pm start.
