You will hear Dr. Gary Ford, President of the Ice Age Floods Institute, review some of the evidence for the Ice Age Floods by following them “downstream” from western Montana to the Pacific Ocean. Dr. Ford will also discuss some present day Pacific Northwest landscapes that are the direct result of multiple Ice Age Floods which occurred between ca.15,550 and 13,350 radiocarbon years B.P.
Dr. Ford completed BS and MS degrees in Earth Science and a Ph.D in Soil Science from Montana State University. During college, he worked summers as a seasonal park ranger in Yellowstone National Park. He taught Soil Science classes at Montana State University and the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point. During his 25 years with the Forest Service, he worked as a soil scientist for the Idaho Panhandle National Forest in Coeur d’Alene, ID where he mapped more than a million acres and worked as the regional soils correlator for the Northern Region of the Forest Service. Ford was on the Landscape Ecology Team that worked on the Ecosystem Management Project. During the last part of his career, he was the Forest Planner on the Idaho Panhandle National Forests and co-leader of the Forest Plan Revision effort for the Idaho Panhandle and Kootenai National Forests. He and his wife, Barbara, live in Coeur d’Alene, and are bee-keepers.
