Overview of Washington's Geologic Landscape

How did the amazing geologic forces both within and at the Earth’s surface produce the fascinating complex record of rocks and landforms of Washington state? The story of mountain building, volcanoes, glaciers and running water over time are all part of the answer. Our geologic story is still being written by the faults, active volcanoes and changing climates of our present dynamic landscape.
We will discuss the ancient and present geologic processes contributing to the formation of Washington, including an examination of the Columbia Plateau and its story of massive lava flows and giant glacial floods, the formation of the North Cascade Mountain Range and volcanism, Salish Sea geology, the Coast Ranges, Olympic Mountains and more.
Registration ends September 28, 2021
