June 2019

We recently welcomed our first geologist-in-residence of the year, Larry Dyke, and our 2019 summer student, Kyle Vokey, to Fogo Island. Read more about Larry & Kyle here.

The Geology Centre is currently open Sunday-Friday from 2-5pm. We can't wait to share our collection of books and specimens with visitors, as well as host special events and workshops throughout the coming season. Admission is always free and all are welcome.

Our current geologist-in-residence, Larry Dyke, will be hosting several guided hikes, as well as two presentations. See poster (right) for details.

Geology at the Edge is the world’s first community-based geologist-in-residence program. Headquartered out of the Fogo Island Geology Centre in the community of Shoal Bay, Geology at the Edge brings prominent geologists of varying specialties to the Island to perform research, lead immersive geology walks, facilitate youth engagement, and make public presentations.

Fogo Island is a geologist's dream. With hundreds of millions of years of geological history, and as one of the few places in the world where the entirety of a magma chamber can be observed, it is the ideal place to foster meaningful entanglements among local people, guests, and scientists.
