Oregon’s Geology: Getting the Big Picture

June 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$60 – $125

The Pacific Northwest is the youngest part of North America and Oregon is in the middle of it all. Made up of igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks that intermingle, juxtapose, and flow together in the West Coast to make a varied landscape. Where do the Klamath/Siskiyou Mountain Ranges fit in this sequence? How does Oregon hold the key to mammal evolution? Where do the Cascade Volcanics fit in this pattern? Join for 2 online sessions plus a field excursion to see a variety of rock types and fossils in context, ending with a hike to the base of Pilot Rock. Ages 12+ welcome. $125 full class, $60 online only.
