Geology and Habitats of the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area, Ohio
This field trip to the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area in northeast Ohio has been prepared in association with the National Association of Geology Teachers' (NAGT) symposium entitled Public Lands and the Teaching of Geology. Stops are in a logical sequence to examine the geologic section, glacial deposits, and the following habitats: slump, hemlock ravine, upland dry woods, floodplain, slope, old field and wetland. Activity by man is minimal; sites are accessible and protected from future development; and the sequence of stops follows ages of bedrock, oldest to youngest. In order to protect the sites, national park policy prohibits collection of samples.
