Who’s ready to party like it’s 40 million years ago in what was one of those most biological hot spots of our Earth’s existence?!? Then join us this summer to participate in a multi-epoch tour through time as we explore how Oregon’s paleoenvironments of yester-year shaped the vegetation and soils we know and love today within the John Day Fossil Beds Painted Hills Unit.
Tour topics will include:

  • Paleopedology/geology
  • Archaeology
  • Geomorphology
  • Biogeochemistry
  • Hydrology
  • Soil survey-style landscape analysis and mapping techniques
  • Present-day fire & rangeland management practices

But wait, wait, there’s more!
We’ve also scheduled post-tour social hours to be centered around friends (old and new), food, music, and rivertime fun! So be sure to register today for your chance to Hootenanny in the Painted Hills this July 30-Aug. 1, 2015!

We can’t wait to see you there!
(We will be tent-camping so be sure to bring your own tent, sleeping bag, headlamps, etc. Bathrooms, showers, washer/dryer, and commercial grade kitchen will be available.)
