The Geological Society of the Oregon Country invites you to its 82nd Annual Banquet. Speaker Dr. Paul Hammond will present “The Western Margin Of North America.”
Collections made by paleontologists impart an enormous amount of information about the ideas and motives of the individual. Thomas Condon, Frontier Missionary and Oregon’s First State Geologist, came to the Oregon Territory in 1852 and soon became interested in its remarkable fossil assemblage. Condon's personal collection of Oregon plant and animal fossils reflect not only his science but his travels and associates as well. Dr. Orr will examine these aspects of his life as well as the nature of his work and achievements.
Come see billion-year-old building stones and the fossils hidden under our feet. Join us for a two-hour outdoor walking tour of downtown Portland’s geological mysteries and oddities. This tour is open to the public.
