Geology Adventuring in the Puget Sound Region

The Seattle landscape supports a rich geologic past that includes huge ice sheets, mega-earthquakes, explosive volcanoes and massive floods that left their signature on our mountains, hillsides, shorelines and the ground beneath our feet. Join us for a user-friendly introduction to the geology in our neighborhoods and skylines. Learn how to identify our rocks and fossils and what they tell us about Seattle’s past, present and future. Then take your new expertise for a test run with a field trip to the beautiful cliffs of Discovery Park to interpret and appreciate the dynamic scenery left behind by recent ice ages. Class meets on campus on Thursday evening with a carpooling field trip on Saturday (details given in Thursday class). Travel related expenses will be shared among driver and passengers.
