MPG Evening Program, 7pm, February 10: Beauty from the Beast: Plate Tectonics and the Landscapes of the Pacific Northwest

The same geological forces that threaten our lives with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions also nourish our spirits by forming spectacular mountains, valleys, and coastlines. Dr. Robert J. Lillie will relate this "Beauty from the Beast" story of the Pacific Northwest by highlighting the relationship between the spectacular scenery in our region to the geological processes that created them. He draws on his experience as a geology professor, park ranger and graphic illustrator to remind us that our hometowns and iconic parklands are subject to geologic processes that affect our lives and livelihoods. By learning to live with the beast of earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions, we can more fully appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. Dr. Lillie's extensively illustrated book on this topic will be for sale at the end of the program. This program is held at and co-sponsored by the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM.
