Webcast: Volcanoes of the Cascades

Volcanoes of the Cascades Webcast

What do Mt. Hood, the Three Sisters, and Mt. Shasta all have in common? They are all volcanoes! If you've ever wondered how they got here, why they're all (mostly) in a line, or why they look the way they do, this webcast is for you. Hal Wershow, Assistant Professor of Geology at Central Oregon Community College, presents a brief (and accessible) introduction to the Cascade Volcanoes.

Ochoco Mountains Coordinator Jamie Dawson also presents on Oregon Wild's efforts to protect the Cascades and the incredibly important habitat that surrounds them.

For those asking about the online course Hal will be teaching through Central Oregon Community College, it's called "G162 CV Cascade Volcanoes". You can see the COCC class schedule here. Hal also highly recommends the book Roadside Geology of Oregon by Marli Miller. He says, "Roadside Geology of Oregon is THE BEST resource for exploring our volcanic heritage."
