The Environmental Resource Center’s (ERC) 4th annual Spring Science Series offers exciting and interactive presentations on scientific topics ranging from plant and animal adaptations and life histories, to unique conservation strategies.
This week of the Spring Science Series features Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve. Hester Mallonee, Park Ranger, will present on volcanism and planetary geology, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and a visit in 2019 from the Apollo astronauts to Craters. Craters of the Moon is a vast ocean of lava flows with scattered islands of cinder cones and sagebrush, where yesterday’s volcanic events are likely to continue tomorrow. This program is offered in conjunction with the ERC’s Spring Exploration Series which brings presenters from across the Northwest to all 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms in Blaine County during the school day. This program is FREE, family-friendly and open to the public! Don’t miss your opportunity to learn about the natural world from visiting experts!
