Join us for an armchair tour of Mount Diablo geology and learn everything you ever wanted to know about the mountain. Is Mount Diablo a volcano? What made the wind caves (not the wind, obviously)? What are those fossil sea shells doing high up on the mountain? We’ll also see evidence of recent (in geological terms) volcanic activity at the base of Diablo’s North Peak, as well as photos of last summer’s massive fire. This presentation will take us on a journey through the history of Mount Diablo, including anecdotes about the adventures (and misadventures) of Diablo’s famous geologists such as Clarence King—who married an ex-slave and led a secret double life! This program is co-listed with The Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation.
