Let me guide you through the 4.6 billion years of Earth’s history. You will be amazed at our wonderful planet whilst learning about the incredible development of nature and the place of humans in relation to the Earth.
We will walk 4.6km, with each kilometre representing 1 billion years, and each metre representing 1 million years. It is very difficult to fully comprehend the scale of time when we consider, for example, that dinosaurs were around approx. 65-250 million years ago, humans evolved 2.5 million years ago, the last ice age ended 13000 years ago and the industrial revolution began 250 years ago. A Deep Time Walk is an immersive experience which will help you grasp the meaning of 4,600,000,000 years.
Part history lesson, part mindfulness session, this walk is all about stepping out of our own lives and gaining a sense of the really Big Picture .
Next walk: Sunday 18th April 2021, 10am, from CERES and along the Merri Creek
