Underneath the MAX lines, rose gardens, and coffee shops of Portland lies evidence of our region’s wild geologic past. Thick layers of hardened lava, wind-blown sediments, and flood deposits were laid down over the last 20 million years by an assortment of geologic processes. Some of them, like the Missoula Floods of the Ice Age, were truly awesome in the scale of their destruction. Join naturalist Dr. Ivan Phillipsen in the classroom and on a field trip around the city and learn how these floods, as well as other events and processes, have shaped our city’s natural landscape.
