In 2009, Oregon celebrated 150 years as a state. Oregon's landscape has a much longer history -- geological processes have been building the state's landscape for more than 150 million years!
The windows in this traveling exhibit from the Oregon Historical Society illustrate how geology crafted Oregon's landscape and natural resources and continues to shape the land and lives of its citizens. The most iconic of Oregon's landscapes -- Crater Lake, Multnomah Falls, Newberry Crater, Steens Mountain, the Painted Hills, and so much more -- display Oregon's geologic splendor.
We invite you to explore selected windows into how Oregon's landscape was assembled during the past 150 million years, and to celebrate those who learned to read the landscape before and during Oregon's 150 years of statehood. The exhibit will be on display at the library Wednesday, May 1 - Wednesday, May 29, 2013.
