Natural Sciences Guild Day Trip | Northern Volcanics by Bus: Geology of the Petrified Forest and The Geysers

Saturday, June 15, 2013, 8 am–6 pm

Redwoods and firs were standing in California well over 3 million years ago. Blown down by a Mount St. Helens-type eruption and converted to stone cell by cell, we can now walk among them guided by a docent from the Petrified Forest near Calistoga.

After lunch in Calistoga, another docent-led trip to The Geysers will include a discussion of the uses of hot springs and the geothermal energy they provide, reminding us that we are standing above a great pool of hot magma!

Trip cost is $125 and will cover transportation from the Museum, two docent-led tours, lunch, and snacks.  To make a reservation, please contact Lynn at lynngotchall@msn.com.
