Geology of the Klamath Range

Date: May 9, 2024
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Geology Of The Klamath Range

The eastern Klamath Mountains flank I-5 between Yreka and Redding. Rocks exposed in the Eastern Klamath terrane record more than 300 million years of Earth’s history.

Since being added to North America, the Eastern Klamath terrane has been eroded, uplifted, and eroded again. During the past 5 million years glaciers and streams have carved the steep canyons that now dissect the region. This makes it susceptible to landslides and flooding.

It has also produced a wealth of gold and other mineral deposits whose extraction, sadly, has left a legacy of environmental damage.

Bill Hirt, Emeritus geology instructor at the College of the Siskiyous, will be exploring the fascinating intricacies of our surroundings in his presentation: Geology of the Klamath Range.

Presented in partnership with Siskiyou Land Trust

Tom Hesseldenz – Mt. Shasta Greenways Project

Date: April 18, 2024
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: Mount Shasta Sisson Museum
Tom Hesseldenz – Mt. Shasta Greenways Project

Imagine looking up Castle Street toward the beautiful view of Mount Shasta, and instead of just seeing pavement and cars, you also see a vibrant flowing stream with numerous pools and riffles framed by lush riparian vegetation. Then imagine walking along that stream all the way from the elementary school through downtown to Sisson Meadow.

Also imagine walking or cycling from the City Park all the way to Lake Siskiyou, or between parks, residential areas, schools, and businesses in town, all on paved paths separate from roadways.

These projects and potential one-way traffic on Chestnut Street and Mount Shasta Boulevard with separated bikeways are all being considered by the City and Parks District, and will be presented by local landscape architect Tom Hesseldenz.
