Presentation on Sedona’s Geology
Sedona AZ (September 30, 2019) – Friends of the Forest’s 2019/2020 First Friday lecture series kicks off on October 4 at 11 a.m. with a geology talk by Friends member Barry Mallis. The event will take place at the Forest Service Visitor Center located south of the Village of Oak Creek on Hwy 179. Mallis’ talk is titled “Fresh Eyes on an Ancient Landscape: Sedona Paleogeology“. This will be a photographic tour of the Sedona landscape, with Mallis examining the forces which have shaped our red rocks, and explaining how the geology of our region fits into the history of Earth’s development. On this journey from the macro level of the continent’s formation to a micro level look at specific features of today’s Red Rock Country vistas, Mallis seeks to stimulate us to view our stunning landscape with new eyes. All events in the First Friday series are free and open to the public.
