Rock Hounding on Brown Mountain




Instructor
: Chas Rogers
Date: Saturday, July 18, 2015
Location: Meet in north Medford
Tuition: $35
 
In this geology field course, we’ll hike in the southern Cascades for a view of how the region was shaped, from early development of the Klamath Mountains and the Rogue Basin to recent formation of the Cascade Mountains. Intersection of these three geologic provinces has contributed to southern Oregon’s unique terrain. This course explores a part of this region by hiking, climbing and collecting rocks that are a part of that formation. We will hike on Brown Mountain to see and study volcanoes and volcanic rocks in the field. At the end of the day, we’ll stop in the Cascade foothills at a BLM site to collect agates, leaf fossils, or petrified wood.
