Details

The Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council (CFWWC) welcomes geologist, author, photographer and University of Oregon Department of Earth Sciences senior instructor, Marli Miller, PhD, as guest speaker. Oregon and Washington feature a variety of physiographic regions with stories tied to explosive volcanic activity, effects of glaciation, continental growth and massive floods of lava and water. The talk will provide a geologic explanation and photographic “road trip” for many subtle and eye-catching roadside landscapes and rock formations.

The CFWWC hosts a family-friendly monthly public meeting series called the Coast Fork Science Pub on the fourth Tuesday of each month. The event begins with informal socializing, trivia, and updates about the watershed and watershed council during the first hour. The Science Pub presentation begins at 6 p.m. CFWWC receives 10% of all sales from the evening between 5 - 7:30 p.m.
