What are GeoAdventures?

The Wilmington Western Railroad follows the Red Clay Valley through the Delaware Piedmont cutting through many of the Piedmont rock units.

GeoAdventures are designed to allow the reader to learn about a particular geologic point of interest in Delaware’s Piedmont province and then take a short field trip to that area. Want to know more about the Wilmington blue rock or Brandywine blue granite? Take the Wilmington Blue Rock GeoAdventure and go see just what the blue rock looks like.

GeoAdventures are great for a family education outing, Boy or Girl Scout training, mineral or rock-collecting club, or Earth science school trips. See the whole Piedmont by reading Special Publication 20 and riding the Wilmington and Western Railroad steam train all along the Red Clay valley following the field trip guide in the back of the book.

Check these pages as new GeoAdventures will be continually added.
