Geology Rocks! Walk with Elizabeth
Saturday, October 7: 10 - 11:30 am at the Otto Preserve, 3560 Sunrise Rd
From the pillow basalt at the top of Migley Point, the honeycomb weathering of the Chuckanut Formation and the rugged outcrops of graywacke at Carter Point, Lummi Island tells a story of deep geologic time. Our island was sutured together at a fault zone at Sunrise Cove and covered by mile high glaciers. Tectonic forces and time has left us with this wonderful dramatic landscape.
Please join us for a presentation on the Geology of Lummi Island. Elizabeth Kilanowski, LIHT Board Member and geologist will talk about the general geology of the island and lead a walk along the Otto Preserve trail to look at one of the unique geologic features of this area.
Elizabeth holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from the University of Minnesota's Institute of Technology and a Master of Science degree in Geology from Western Washington University.
