    Rocking with Nick Doe

    Rocking with Nick Doe

    On this episode we’re going deep into the island’s geology with Nick Doe.
     
    Nick is one of Gabriola’s go-to sources for the island’s geological history. For almost two decades he wrote and edited Shale, a journal of all things historical for the Gabriola Museum. Naturally with a slight editorial tilt towards articles about rocks. 
    On this episode Nick reveals the island's rock history, including unlocking the mystery of the Malaspina Galleries formation and fate.
