The history and geology of California’s highest peaks in the Sierra Nevada Range are the subjects of the September 24 free public lecture sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey. The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. in the USGS Auditorium in Building 3 on the USGS campus at 345 Middlefield Road in Menlo Park.

The slide-illustrated lecture will be presented by USGS geologist James Moore who has climbed and mapped many of these high peaks from Mammoth Pass to Mount Whitney.

This lecture marks the first time that the USGS lecture will held on the USGS campus in nearly two years, as the building where the lecture hall is located has been undergoing renovation. That lecture hall is located on the second floor of Building 3, near the main USGS entrance at 345 Middlefield Road. There is plenty of parking in lots adjacent to the building.

Attendant to the lecture, the Survey’s newly remodeled Earth Science Information Center on the main floor of Building 3 will be open for browsing and map sales until 7 p.m on September 24.

The USGS serves the nation by providing reliable scientific information to describe and understand the Earth; minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters; manage water, biological, energy, and mineral resources; and enhance and protect our quality of life.
