MORE INFO ABOUT THE PRESENTATIONS
Vashon Rocks! Presented by Steve Bergman, 9-9:30am
The natural beauty that attracts us to Vashon Island is a direct result of its geology, including the magical vistas, the diverse mineral-rich soils, beach cliffs exposing glacial deposits, and wide spectrum of shoreline pebbles exposed at low tide. Vashon geology is also responsible for many natural hazards that might harm us, including earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, and tsunamis. This talk highlights several aspects of our rocks and aims to explain the role
Earth System processes have played in the Island's geological history.
