Huge Floods in the Pacific Northwest: Missoula Floods, Bonneville Flood, and Columbia River Basalts
Nick Zentner, an educator and a uniquely dynamic speaker, will give a talk on three ancient Huge Floods in the Pacific Northwest at the Hood River Library on Saturday, June 11, at 1:00 PM. Many people are aware of the Ice Age Floods, but those floods are only part of a larger story of immense floods of lava and debris-laden water hundreds of feet deep that have shaped this beautiful and tranquil place we live.
In his own inimitable style, Nick will share a tale so fascinating and unbelievable that it marks our area as even more unique throughout the world than we already know it is.
