KUCHING: Head to the foot of Mount Santubong for a geological adventure with Dr Hans Hazebroek on July 12.

A local geologist and member of the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) will lead the field trip and answer questions on what rocks can be seen, how the rocks were formed and how geologists can tell the age of the rocks.

This geological field trip is the first lead-up activity to the Santubong Nature Festival (SNF), jointly organised by MNS Kuching Branch and Permai Rainforest Resort and supported by Kuching City North Commission and Sarawak Museum Department.

Interested participants are to meet at the Santubong National Park entrance, located about 1km south of the Sarawak Cultural Village entrance, at 8.45am for registration and a safety.

From there, a scenic walk to the main waterfall will take about 45 minutes.

The walk is expected to end at 12.30pm.

This geology walk is suitable for people who are less fit and parents with children aged eight years and above.

However, MNS is not responsible for accidents or those who leave the group and wander in the jungle by themselves.

Parents are to keep an eye on their children and be mindful of slippery ground or rocks.

For more information and to register for the walk, email mns.santubong@gmail.com or call SNF organising chairman Vincent Wong at 013­-802 0005 or event secretary Lim Sin Shin at 014­-990 3335.
