Geology of Washington County

February 10, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MST

Speaker: Mark Dershowitz

Washington County lies at the convergence of three distinct geological areas: the Mohave Desert, Colorado Plateau and Great Basin.  The county also boasts the largest laccolith (magma injected between layers of sedimentary rock) in the United States:  Pine Valley Mountain.

Retired geologist Mark Dershowitz will describe this astounding landscape.
