GreenDrinks: How Geology Has Shaped Your Favorite Mountains and Waterfalls

January 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Join us at our NEW GreenDrinks location at Appalachian Coffee Company!

Listen as Bill Jacobs, author of the recently published book “Whence these special places?”, discusses the geologic processes that produced WNC’s array of mountains and waterfalls. Jacobs will share how some of our most iconic natural places were formed, including Panthertown Valley, Looking Glass Rock and Falls, Shining Rock, Devil’s Courthouse, and Triple, Rainbow and Whitewater Falls. The book and presentation are designed for non-scientists, so no previous geology knowledge is necessary. Signed copies of his book will be available for purchase.

5:30 p.m.: Grab and drink and network with like-minded locals.

6:00 p.m.: Enjoy the presentation and learn something new!

Hendersonville Green Drinks is presented by Conserving Carolina, MountainTrue, and Appalachian Coffee Company. Come learn about current environmental issues, have relevant discussions, and meet with like-minded people.

This is a monthly event and everyone is welcome. You don’t have to drink at Green Drinks, just come and listen. Appalachian Coffee Company offers beer, wine, coffee drinks, and sodas. A limited food menu will be available.
