Natural & Historic Curiosities within a Day’s Drive


With Barry Evans

The North Coast and vicinity has an amazing number of diverse and beautiful natural and historic sites within easy reach. In this class we’ll take a guided tour, via slides and stories, to some lesser-known destinations, all of which can be visited in a day.

We’ll “visit” Lava Beds, Lassen volcano, Umpqua hot springs, Oregon marble caves, Usal’s “candelabra” trees, the Bear Harbor “railway to nowhere,” the staging site for granite for the nation’s most expensive lighthouse, the former settlement of Dyerville, fairy-like Grieg-French-Bell trail, Gold River’s Rogue River bridge (made possible by French engineer Eugène Freyssinet), Lyons Ranch…and more.

Thurs., Nov. 7 • 1:30-3:30 p.m.
