Glacial Lake Missoula Chapter’s Spring Fling
May 3, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
The Glacial Lake Missoula Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute is hosting their Spring Fling at MNHC!
FREE for GLM and MNHC members; $5 suggested donation for non-members. Open to the public!
Ice Age Floods and the Channeled Scablands: The program will entail a general overview by Brent Cunderla of the Ice Age Floods story that occurred numerous times during the Pleistocene (Ice Age) and the pathways of the floods from the northwest Montana to the Pacific Ocean, with an emphasis on the flood features found in eastern Washington. The talk will include a discussion of how Joseph Pardee and J. Harlen Bretz swayed the geologic community about the field evidence of these catastrophic floods.
Brent is a geologist who retired from the Bureau of Land Management in Wenatchee. He has been actively exploring late Pleistocene glacial geology for the past 25 years while working with the National Park Service and Ice Age Floods Institute to help designate the Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail. He has a bachelor’s degree in earth sciences from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, and a master’s degree in geology from Portland State University.
