SC  215                Geology of Orange County: Evolution Of A Landscape

Note: This class was offered in Spring 2012. John Bush, Course Developer, requested that we post this to our blog.

Even a simple glance around Orange County reveals that we live in the midst of a fascinating geologic setting. Join us for a two-part explanation of how our most dramatic geologic landscapes were created and continue to evolve.

  • March 26 – Evolution of the Southern California Coastal Region

Information will be presented on where best to visit (on your own) key OC locations to view the subject matter covered in class. Input will be solicited from attendees on the possibility of the class instructor and developers being available at various designated sites and times to assist with interpretation.
