The Geological Journey of Desert Rivers

Free! (donations encouraged)
Join ONDA for the second event in its 2021 High Desert Speaker Series: The Geological Journey of Desert Rivers, featuring Dr. Elizabeth Safran, Associate Professor of Geological Science at Lewis & Clark.
Follow the course of Oregon’s wild rivers as they journey through the lively geology of the high desert, and hear how the geological history of eastern Oregon – from landslides to lava flows – has interacted with and influenced beloved desert waterways like the Owyhee River.
This event will be hosted online on Tuesday, March 30, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Registration is free and required. Only one person per household should register for this event. All registrants will be entered to win a giveaway prize package and will have access to a captioned recording of the presentation after the event.
