We’ve got an exciting two-day tour planned that will introduce you to Newberry Volcano’s complex volcanic history and its geologic significance on the central Oregon landscape. We’ll see some beautiful soil profiles formed in numerous tephras from eruptions that have occurred between 80,000 and 1,200 years before present, and will discuss the unique management implications of these individual deposits. We’ll also see and discuss evidence of other large-scale geomorphic processes (Flooding! Glaciation! Landslides!). See the attached > draft agenda < for more information…
See the OSSS events page for more details.
Price includes: Access to the campground, meals Wednesday through Friday night, opportunity for carpool to the campground, and 2 full days of guided soil tours.
