Field Trip: Anza-Borrego Geology

Leader: Geology Professor Don Barrie, Chair, Physical Sciences Dept., San Diego Mesa College.
Agua Caliente County Park
Following the Friday evening lecture, Professor Barrie leads a trip to Agua Caliente County Park to discuss the geologic history of the Salton Trough and various styles of faulting in the area. We’ll examine ancient igneous and metamorphic rocks that pre-date the opening of the Salton Trough, and take an easy-to-moderate hike of about one mile. Meet at Agua Caliente County Park at 9 a.m. Bring a sack lunch and plenty of water. 2WD okay. No charge; space is limited. Priority will be given to those attending the class on January 11; others will be added as space is available. Call the Nature Center for reservations. If you are holding a spot and cannot go, please call ahead to release your space so another can attend.
