Running Through Time

The theme of expedition Utah is ‘Running Through Time’, which reflects the expedition topics of Geology and Paleontology. During this expedition Youth Ambassadors will ‘run‘ through 255 million years of the Earth’s history, written in the geological record of one of the great natural treasures of the world, Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in southern Utah. The education focus of the expedition is to use the disciplines of geology and paleontology to contemplate the history of life on Earth, which spans 3.6 billion years. Modern humans are a footnote in this history, appearing a mere 200 thousand years ago. Yet in that short time, human activity has had a profound impact on global ecosystems. Youth Ambassadors will be asked the question:

“does the geological record of life on Earth offer lessons for modern man”?

Their task is to establish whether the answer to this question can be found in the folds of the Earth over which they will literally be running!!!
