Topic: "52 Million Years in Western Wyoming"

Ancient lake beds! Massive earthquakes! Cataclysmic volcanic eruptions! What’s not to love about western Wyoming? Take a journey through the geological wonders of western Wyoming with Tellus Director Emeritus Jose Santamaria. We start with the ancient lake beds of the Green River formation in southern Wyoming where you can collect 52-million-year-old fish fossils and petrified wood. Then we travel north to experience the fascinating geology of Yellowstone National Park and the formation of the Grand Tetons. There’s going to be plenty of eye candy as Santamaria shares photos from his travels in the area. He will also bring mineral and fossil door prizes to give away to those attending the meeting in person.
