Course Description

The rock formations of Joshua Tree National park are not only visually stunning but also offer insight into the 1.7 billion year history of this spectacular National Park. This course will enable us to piece together the history of this region and much of California and the western US. Topics will include plate tectonics, climate and weather, rock identification, plant and animal adaptations and the interaction of life, land and climate. We will also take an excursion to surface ruptures of the 1992 Landers Earthquake. This 7.3 magnitude quake is one of the largest in California?s recorded history.
