Since the last Oregon Encyclopedia History Night was fun and I enjoyed the presentation was very informative, let's try this again. The power station is a small theater, but by getting there early I should be able to hold enough seats for the group. We will be upstairs on the balcony - and Happy Hour is from 3 - 6 pm. So come early if you are able to.
The topic for the night:
“Our Vanishing Glaciers: 100 Years of Glacier Retreat in the Three Sisters Wilderness Area”
Jim O'Connor will examine the history of early Pacific Northwest exploration, climbing, and glacier photography with present-day matches of historical photographs.
About the Presenter - O'Connor is a Pacific Northwest native long interested in the processes and events that shape the remarkable and diverse landscapes of the region. He has spent the last 20 years focused on the "science of scenery" (as ascribed to the field of geomorphology), for the last 15 years with the U.S. Geological Survey Water Science Center in Portland, Ore.
