Amazing Geological Sights of Northern Arizona with Ken Bork
Red Rock State Park
April 1, 2018 2:00 p.m.
Northern Arizona has an amazingly rich collection of geological sites, many known for their exceptional beauty. We will tour the northern tier of the state, in an illustrated lecture from Monument Valley and the Navajo lands of the NE to the Grand Canyon, continuing to the Nevada border. Then we will consider the Petrified Forest, Meteor Crater, the San Francisco Peaks, Sedona, and other noteworthy geo-sites along the middle of the state. Behind each beautiful sight is a geological story with its own inherent power to inform.
Ken Bork taught geology at the college level for four decades, focusing on the history of the Earth and its life forms. His Ph.D. is in Geology, specializing in paleontology. Current research and publication involves the history of geology. A resident of Sedona, his interests now include interpreting the geology of sites in Northern Arizona. This lecture is included with regular park entrance fees. However, seating is limited and reservations required. Please call 928-282-6907 to reserve your seats.
