Lucy’s Place: Coastal Geology Walk – applications due by this weekend

Only a few days to go to submit applications to join the free Lucy’s Place CIC coastal geology walk!
We start Lucy’s Place 2024 well-being community meets on Sunday 14th April with a coastal geology walk along the beautiful East Lothian Coast. You will be guided by Dr Richard Phillips. Richard has an academic background as a lecturer in Structural Geology and  Geohazards and will share his knowledge and expertise of the local geology. White Sands offers the most extensive limestone outcrops in the central belt. We will take a short walk from White Sands to Barns Ness and step back over 300 million years to a time of coral reefs, lagoons and coal-forming forests. Lots of opportunity for fossil hunting and a good spot for a picnic!
Geology walks such as this have positive impacts on health and well-being. It is a form of mindfulness activity in that you are bringing your awareness to the natural environment in the present moment. You can let the worries and stresses of the day float away and bring your attention to the world around you. It will also increase knowledge, sense of achievement and above all it will be fun!
