Geology and Our National Parks

This is a wonderful way to study some of the amazing parks and monuments of our National Park system. Designed for high school this is a one semester study and includes:

  • Covers 29 United States national parks and monuments
  • 19 rock and mineral samples from the various areas studied, individually bagged and labeled (see pictures above)
  • Textbook
  • Paperback, full color, 196 pages

Each park or monument presents a different area of geological study, so while you get a grand overview of these parks, you also get a study of one particular area of geology with each location. And it is all done from a Young Earth, Global Flood perspective.

Parks and monuments covered with the various areas of study:

  • Yellowstone National Park (our restless Earth)
  • Petrified Forest National Park, Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Fossil Butte National Monument, Badlands National Monument(fossils, preservation and petrification)
  • Mt. Rainier and Mt. Lassen National Parks (stratovolcanoes and andesite)
  • Yosemite National Park (glaciers and the Ice Age)
  • Grand Teton National Park (orogeny)
  • The five national parks of Utah – Bryce, Canyonlands, Zion, Capitol Reef, Arches (erosion)
  • Crater Lake National Park and Newberry Volcano/Caldera National Monument (calderas and rhyolite)
  • Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, Craters of the Moon National Monument, Capulin Volcano National Monument, El Malpais National Monument and Lava Beds National Monument(basalt behavior)
  • Glacier National Park (global warming and climate change: is there a difference?)
  • Grand Canyon National Park (deposition and transportation, the power of water)
  • North Cascades National Park (rock types and what has been observed)
  • Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument (interpretative frameworks and biases)
  • Dinosaur National Monument (dinosaurs and the Flood)
  • Carlsbad Caverns National Park and Mammoth Caves National Park (caves and chemistry)

Samples include (all collected legally outside of the national parks):

  • 19 rock, mineral, and fossil samples from the various areas studied, individually bagged and labeled; samples may vary with each kit, but will include samples like the following (see picture above): fossil fish, pumice, petrified wood, tuff, fault gouge, concretion, andesite, pahoehoe basalt, fossil turtle shell, glacial loess, limestone, granite, disarticulated dinosaur bone, sandstone, metamorphic rock, conglomerate, rhyolite, A’a’ basalt, gneiss.
  • 12 rock forming minerals: quartz, amphibole, pyroxene, calcium feldspar, biotite mica, magnetite (iron), olivine, muscovite mica, potassium feldspar, sodium feldspar, jasper, calcite (pictured above)

The text also includes special sections on understanding Deism, and radiometric dating.

Each lesson contains thought questions.  A final exam with answers is included.
