History and Hops: A Geologic Tour of Clatsop Plains
March 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
History and Hops: A Geologic Tour of Clatsop Plains with Tom Horning. What do we see as we travel throughout Seaside and the Clatsop Plains? We notice that trees have gone; that areas have flooded; that features of the land change over time. The topography and geology we see have formed over the past 4500 years. Join Tom Horning as he shares how our area formed by slow chronic processes punctuated by infrequent catastrophes. Great storms and Magnitude 9 subduction zone earthquakes and tsunamis caused erosion and changes in vegetation patterns of forests and plains, rearranging landforms, and disrupting Native American communities.
History & Hops is a series of local history discussions hosted by the Seaside Museum on the last Thursday of each month, September through May, at Seaside Brewing Co.
