Manzanita, Oregon – On January 10th, geologist Tom Horning will take us on a journey through time discussing the Nehalem Alps, their formation, the Yellowstone Hotspot, uplift of the coast range, the Tillamook Volcanics and how it all relates to the North Coast Land Conservancy’s Rain Forest Reserve Project! The talk is titled “Geology of the Nehalem Alps”. Tom wears many hats. In addition to running Horning Geosciences he also works with the North Coast Land Conservancy and has served on a variety of Seaside committees. Furthermore, he’s a Seaside, OR native and has personal experience with tsunamis. If anyone knows about local geology, it’s Tom!
Before Tom’s talk, the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council will hold its Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting will include a presentation on LNWC’s work over the last year. This will cover progress toward culvert replacements, an extensive habitat assessment, hiring a new Council Coordinator, and lots of project monitoring. The LNWC will also be electing Board Members and officers for the Board of Directors. Come and find out how you can be involved with improving our watershed. Members who have attended 2 or more meetings in 2018 are eligible to vote.
This event will be held at the Pine Grove Community House, 225 Laneda Ave, in Manzanita. The Annual Meeting begins at 5 pm. The presentation will start at 7:10 pm following a brief update from the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council at 7 pm.
