Yorkshire Geology Day
On the 14 May 2022, the annual Yorkshire Geology Day returned to the National Coal Mining Museum following a break as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. The event was well attended by groups from around Yorkshire providing opportunities to delve into Yorkshire’s geology through interaction with fossils, examination of thin sections through a microscope and much more. The WYGT stand hosted a “Guess the rock” quiz, encouraging visitors to identify different rocks from “who am I” style clues as well as providing leaflets and plaster cast fossils. The event was well attended and harboured lots of interest from younger visitors particularly women and girls looking to pursue a career in geology.
