INSIGHT FOR ELDERS is pleased to announce a lecture by Dr. Clayton Nichols, well known geologist.

The lecture will be held at the Oysterville Schoolhouse on Tuesday, May 24th from 2pm to 4pm.

Dr. Nichols, a former Peninsula resident, will set the stage for a theme of the pluses and minuses of living in a dynamic geologic environment. He will present the geologic history of the Long Beach Peninsula. Then he will concentrate on the specific ways that geology impacts our lives here.

He will characterize the Cascade Volcanoes as a positive feature, especially if you’re not a downwinder.

By contrast, he will then discuss the progress that’s been made in understanding the seismic and tsunami risks presented by the Cascade Subduction Zone in the last several years.

You will not want to miss this important lecture that will for sure educate you on pertinent geologic facts about our beloved Peninsula.
