A Birds-Eye View of the Ice Age Floods

The Hermiston Public Library is hosting author and geologist Bruce Bjornstad  on Tuesday, September 29 at 6:30 p.m. in the library's Lanham Room.

The cataclysmic floods from Lake Missoula occurred about 15,000 years ago and inundated portions of the Pacific Northwest. This program will explain how they happened and the significant impact they had on our region.

The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. downstairs in the Lanham Room. The author will have a slide show of the Ice Age Floods and aerial footage of the scablands taken by a drone.
 
A resident of Richland, Washington, Bruce Bjornstad is a licensed geologist/hydrogeologist who has studied the Ice Age floods since 1980. He is a senior research scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. There is more information about the presenter at www.brucebjornstad.com.
