DISCUSSING THE LOCUST FORK RIVER AND HIS NEW BOOK

"LOST WORLDS IN ALABAMA ROCKS"

He’s the one who first “discovered” the ancient story of the Locust Fork River.  Maybe the Native Americans knew somehow it had been flowing since before anyone’s remembrance.  Maybe the native buffalo knew too…
But, Jim Lacefield lent scientific weight to the story. He saw “entrenched meanders” that clued him to the river’s having persisted in cutting its way through the Appalachian Mountains as they rose. Tough, gritty river!
Some years ago, FLFR had simply asked this very fine, homestate geologist to “read” our river for what the rocks could tell us.  Turns out, those rocks had lots to tell!
Come hear that story, and see how it fits into Jim Lacefield’s 2nd edition of this “owners’ manual”, Lost Worlds in Alabama Rocks

Lost Worlds
                

Our Locust fork will be a feature of his presentation, as it is in his book. It was Dr. Lacefield who first told us our river was "older than the hills".
