Earthquakes are as much a part of California as sunshine and beaches. The San Andreas Fault is the most visible reminder of us. When the Big One eventually hits CA, it will be the San Andreas fault in Ground Zero. Until that time happens, I think its worth exploring and learning more about this seismological marvel. So come join me in San Bernardino County as we go on an all day field trip with an expert on the subject matter!

From their website:

"San Andreas Fault: Redlands to the Salton Sea with Senior Curator Kathleen Springer and Curator of Paleontology Eric Scott. Explore the southern San Andreas Fault and the epicenter of the Great California ShakeOut scenario. 

The San Bernardino County Museum Association has arranged a San Andreas Fault field trip on October 12th, when participants will join Springer and Curator of Geology Chris Sagebiel on a full-day excursion.

"This trip will open your eyes to the mighty forces of nature," said Springer. "We will leave the museum and venture to the Cajon Pass, through the San Gabriel Mountains, and out into the Mojave Desert to view the San Andreas Fault in all of its glory. We will discover the geology of Southern California and how the San Andreas Fault Zone has shaped the landscape, and ultimately, our lives in this region. In Wrightwood, we will view the most southern extent of rupture on the San Andreas system that occurred in the huge 1857 earthquake and discuss the potential for future events. Our excursion will take us through millions of years of earth history up through recent times with discussions about earthquakes in Southern California today."

This trip is limited to 25 individuals, and advance registration is required. The cost of $70 per person includes a light breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages, and transportation. 

Senior Curator of Geological Sciences Kathleen Springer has over nineteen years' experience in leading geologic and paleontologic investigations throughout Southern California, Arizona and Nevada.  She specializes in the application of stratigraphic and geomorphologic controls and interpretations to paleontologic investigations, and emphasizes the importance of detailed data recovery and full curation of recovered resources in such studies.  Her efforts have led to the recovery and preservation of thousands of significant fossils and their associated data that currently reside in the SBCM. 

A resident of Claremont, she has been recognized by the Association of Environmental Professionals for environmental education and by the California Mineralogical Society."

    Need to cancel since this was sold out by the time I tried to purchase tickets. Added myself to the waitlist. Hopefully, I'll be able to join this tour this time or another time.
