Landscapes and Landforms of the Okanogan Highlands, with Karl Lillquist
Event Description: Okanogan Highlands Alliance (OHA) and the Okanogan Land Trust (OLT) are excited to announce a three-part series of educational events focused on geology. OHA is hosting the first event on Friday, March 6th, when Dr. Karl Lillquist returns to Tonasket. “This landscape has been shaped by various tectonic, weathering, landslide, stream, glacier, and wind-related processes,” Lillquist says. “Most important of these was glaciation by the Okanogan Lobe of the Cordilleran Icesheet. With a focus on glaciation, we will explore the origins and evolution of landscapes and landforms in the Okanogan Highlands.” Karl’s special interest in geomorphology, a field focusing on landforms and how they originated, has intriguing application to the Okanogan Highlands. We hope that you will join us in looking at the Highlands landscape through geologic time — you might never look at our highland hills and valleys the same way again!
