Geology of our National Parks with Dr. Stan Chernicoff

Tues., Apr. 28, 2015 | 7 – 8:30 pm

North America's National Parks are some of the world's most scenically spectacular places. They are also extraordinary laboratories in which to explore and discover virtually all things geological. This 4-week lecture series, which will highlight some of the very best geological stories within America's parks, focuses on the American West -- from Yellowstone, Glacier, and the Tetons in the Rockies to the wonders of the Colorado Plateau in Zion, Arches, Canyonlands, Petrified Forest, and the Grand Canyon.
