Geology Program Rescheduled
“Reading the Landscape of Estes Park,” a special program describing local geology, will be presented this Saturday, April 25, at 3:00 p.m. in Hempel Auditorium, Estes Park Center, YMCA of the Rockies. Due to the weather, this event was postponed from last week.
James C. Cole, U. S. Geological Survey career scientist, will make the presentation sponsored by the Estes Valley Land Trust. This unique educational opportunity is complimentary and open to the public; donations are welcome.
Dr. Cole has done extensive study of granitic and metamorphic rocks around the Estes Valley and throughout the northern Front Range. Earlier this decade, he wrote a short illustrated booklet “Guide to Roadside Geologic Exploration Around Estes Park, Colorado” that describes self-guided tours of landscape and geological features in this area.
Cole’s most recent publication is the Geologic Map of the Estes Park quadrangle, which covers a broad area from Granby to Loveland. Copies of the guide and map will be available for purchase, by cash or check, at the program.
Jim Cole received his B.S. degree in Geology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1969, and earned his Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Colorado. He is now in the process of summarizing many long-term investigations of geology and landscape evolution in northern Colorado.
The Land Trust is pleased to present this program about the natural environment which surrounds our community.
