The Klamath Mountains: A Geologic History


With Mark Bailey, Natural Historian

We will explore the amazing progress of the Klamath Mountains from an ancient sea to the modern-day peaks and valleys of our close and mysterious neighbor. Exploring the geologic wonders that are spread across the Klamath region, we will look at the organisms that have lived here that have been preserved in the rocks across the region, while using these same rocks to tell the story of an evolving and dynamic range of mountains.

Wed., March 10 • 3-5 p.m.
