Field tripping around Oregon: Trying to see the bedrock for the gravel

We all know that Oregon hosts innumerable places to see its incredible geology, but many of those places – even some right next to each other – can seem completely unrelated. How do they all fit together?

On May 24, Marli Miller will present a wandering photo-tour of Oregon’s geology that highlights field trip localities around our state – and brings them together to tell Oregon’s geologic story. She got the inspiration for this talk while researching the many disparate localities for her latest book “Oregon Rocks! A Guide to 60 Amazing Geologic Sites,” published in April, 2021 with Mountain Press in Missoula.

Marli has authored and co-authored several books on the geology of Oregon and Washington, including Roadside Geology of Oregon, Roadside Geology of Washington, Oregon Rocks! A Guide to 60 Amazing Geologic Sites, and Colorado Rocks! A Guide to Geology Sites in the Centennial State.
