Fossil Hunt

The Geography Club went on a fossil hunt in Colin Glen as part of their on going eco-project with Belfast and City Council and this week Jo Boylan from the Belfast Hills Partnership joined the group as tour guide. Students were able to learn about the geology and formation of the mountains surrounding Belfast, tree and plant identification and the habitat the glen provides for wildlife. They also had the opportunity to go on a fossil hunt and some students (Caitlin Lindsay, Chantelle Reynolds and Sibheal McGarry) were lucky enough to find some bivalve fossils, close the river!
