Laguna Wetland Geology Through Time

Wednesday, September 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

| Free

What shaped the Laguna de Santa Rosa watershed? Why does the Laguna flow from south to north? Was the Laguna really a big lake at one time in history? Geology and hydrology are the driving forces behind life as we know it in the Laguna watershed. Join Nicole Myers, lecturer at Sonoma State University, for a journey through geologic time and history in Northern California. We will compare the Laguna watershed with the marshes of the Central Valley, and end with a closer look at our local geology, including how faults shaped the Laguna and unanswered mysteries that researchers are still studying today.

About the Panelist: Nicole Myers, M.S. in Geological Sciences, developed a passion for understanding the Earth from a childhood fascination with rocks and volcanoes, and now teaches others to appreciate planet Earth. Nicole has been teaching earth science classes, including geology, climatology, and earth history for more than fifteen years. She currently teaches at Sonoma State University, and through Appreciating Earth (www.appreciatingearth.com) Nicole brings her enthusiasm to the community by offering earth science field explorations and presentations.

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