Zoom Talk: History of Natural Disasters in the Laguna Watershed

Wednesday, November 9 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

| Free

The geology of the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed has been shaped by time and geologic events. Some events cause significant change in a short period of time, and are disastrous for the people who call the region home. Active faults give the Laguna its shape and topography, and the shape of the land controls how water and air flows through the region as global climate changes. How have earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, mudflows, floods, and wildfires shaped the Laguna de Santa Rosa, and how are these events interconnected? Join Nicole Myers, geology lecturer at Sonoma State University, for a journey through geologic time and history in Northern California. We will learn about disasters of the past, consider how to prepare for the future, and begin to appreciate that disastrous events have made this region the beautiful place that it is.

Free (suggested donation $5 – $15). Pre-registration required.
