The Mystery of Wedgwood Rock

You could live your whole life in the quiet North Seattle neighborhood of Wedgwood and never realize that there is a nearly 20 foot tall, 1.5 million pound glacial erratic right off the main road. Seattle’s landscape is scarred by glaciers. The web of inlets and bays we call the Puget Sound was carved by a series of growing and receding Ice Age events. These glaciers left behind bits and pieces of debris, like giant boulders called glacial erratics.

Come learn about the Wedgwood Rock from geologist and author Dr. Stanley Chernicoff and maybe even pay it a little visit if you’re in the area!

Special thanks to Matt Chernicoff for producing this wonderful video.
