An Armchair Tour of Mount Diablo

April 24, 2014

Armchair Travelers, a monthly program, will take place at the Livermore Public Library Civic Center on Thursday, May 8, from 1:30 to 2:30 pm. Join us for an armchair tour of Mount Diablo presented by Ken Lavin of the Mount Diablo Interpretive Association. Is Mount Diablo a volcano? What are those fossil sea shells doing high up on the mountain? Get answers to these questions and more in this geological presentation about Mount Diablo. See evidence of recent (in geological terms) volcanic activity at the base of North Peak, as well as photos of last summer’s big fire. This presentation will also take us on a journey through the history of Mount Diablo including anecdotes about the adventures (and misadventures) of Diablo’s famous geologists. Mount Diablo Interpretive Association (MDIA) is a non-profit volunteer organization that assists the California Department of Parks and Recreation in maintaining and interpreting Mount Diablo State Park.
Adults are invited to this free program on the second Thursday of each month in the Community Meeting Rooms of the Civic Center Library, 1188 S. Livermore Avenue, Livermore. For additional information please call 925 373-5500.
