You will hear Dr. Gene Kiver’s lecture summarizing the geology of Washington State. His presentation is based on the 2016 published book “Washington Rocks” which was designed with the non-geologist in mind. He has selected some very interesting Washington sites of geological interest for this event. The book is co-authored with Chad Pritchard and Rik Orndorff. Dr. Kiver graduated from Case-Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and later from the University of Wyoming in Laramie where he received his Doctorate in Geology. He taught Geology for over 32 years at Eastern Washington University and conducted an active research career that emphasized landforms and surface processes. He spends much of his time as possible following trails while photographing and exploring the geology and beauty of the natural world.
