Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter to Meet

Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute will meet 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center, 127 South Mission, Wenatchee. Jack Powell, geologist with State DNR, will discuss “The Last Billion Years of Washington State’s Geologic History.” About a billion years ago, Washington’s coast, with an expansive coastal plain, lay just west of Spokane. Over the last two hundred million years, as the North American plate moved west, small continents came crashing in from the Pacific, accreting to the coastline to form what we now recognize as Washington. First the Okanogan sub-continent, then the North Cascades micro-continent. Columbia River Basalt flows and Ice Age Floods are our recent history. The program is free & open to the public.
