World Humanist Day guided geological walk and picnic in Edinburgh

Enjoy this geologically inspired walk led by Angus Miller, a bespoke tour for those interested in the deep time aspects of geology and its relevance to Humanism and Humanists. Approximately 2 hours in duration, booking is essential and as places are limited, we kindly ask that you let us know as soon as possible if you can’t make it so that someone else can enjoy it.

The walk will be followed by a celebratory picnic outside the Ranger Education Centre in Holyrood Park.

For those joining the picnic at around 1.30pm there will be a welcome to all, with some light refreshments plus a chance to meet fellow Humanists and those interested in Humanist ideas. There is no need to book for the picnic, just see what the weather is like.  Hear what those who do the walk have to say, plus chat with those who are there to socialise.  Bring along lunch or a snack and stay for as long as feels right!

The walk will begin at 11.30am promptly, starting outside the National Museum in Chambers Street (by the outdoor steps) ending up in Holyrood Park by the Education Centre at 1.30pm approximately

This is organised by Edinburgh Humanists local group as part of a programme of events celebrating World Humanist Day, supported by Humanist Society Scotland, working towards a more secular, rational, and socially just country.
