What did Kansas City look like millions of years ago? And what do the rocks below our feet tell us about our region during deep time?

Geologist Richard J. Gentile addresses those questions in a presentation inspired by the exhibit KC|BC, on display through April 26 at the Central Library, and the exhibit Kansas City Millions of Years Ago – Reading the Rocks, a show of digital illustrations and actual fossils at the Box Gallery in Suite 211 of the Commerce Bank Building, 1000 Walnut St.
