Changing Shorelines along the Central Coast
March 11,[masked]:15am - Inn at Morro Bay - $3
We live on the edge of a continent, on the interface between two radically different environments, the ocean and the terrestrial. This Mind Walk will take you from the coastal sea floor, across the shore line, and up on the marine terrace and adjacent hills of the Central Coast. You will see what is underground and how the wave action and tectonic processes have joined together to give us our land forms and gain an historical, geological perspective on how change occurs. Perhaps it will change how you perceive your world.
Tim Cleath is a local hydrogeologist and consultant on water developments for projects related to the construction of homes and businesses.
The Monday Morning Mind Walks return to the Inn at Morro Bay for a second year. Mind Walks are held every Monday morning from 10:15 AM to noon, January through March.
If you’re a lifelong learner interested in natural history, the Mind Walk Lecture Series is for you! Speakers are experts in their fields and welcome audience questions. Topics cover a broad range—there’s something for everybody! This is a fabulous opportunity to broaden your horizons and learn more about your community and the world at large.
This year, we are trying a new venue: Family Mind Walks. We will hold three presentations aimed at both adults and children. They will be held at the Museum of Natural History from 2:00 PM to 3:45 PM on the following Saturdays: February 2, February 23, and March 30.
As in previous years, Central Coast State Parks Association (CCSPA) members may attend any of the Mind Walks free of charge. Nonmembers must pay the standard Museum entry fee ($3; no charge for children under 17 years).
