Taipei City Neishuangxi Geological Tour

Taipei City Neishuangxi Geological Tour   Nothing beats going outdoors in this cool autumn. The Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO) of Taipei City Government’s Public Works Department is organizing a geological landscape tour, “The past and present of Taipei Basin”, on November 19th, 2016 at the Neishuangxi Nature Center, and welcomes parents and children of the fifth grade and above to come and join us!   The GEO expressed that geological conditions are closely related to urban safety. It has specially set up a geological classroom at the Neishuangxi Nature Center to continuously promote geological environmental education on slopes, making use of the natural landscape to explain the terrain features, and allowing the public to learn more about the city they live in.   The head of GEO’s Forest Recreation Section, Sun Shu-Xia, said, a lively and interesting skit is designed for this geological tour to lead adults and children in exploring the reasons behind the formation of Taipei Basin, and to learn geological terms such as dip slope, river bank erosion, fault zone, etc., by stepping on the stones and rocks with our own feet and unveiling the secrets of the earth with our five senses.   The tour is sponsored by the Geotechnical Engineering Office of Taipei City Public Works Department, and is free to the public.
