Member-exclusive: Pt. Lobos Geology Tour with Ed Clifton

Fun Members Only Event!

Museum members are invited to take part in this free outdoors event. Join acclaimed geologist Ed Clifton, Ph.D. on Saturday, November 14th, from 3-5 p.m., as he reveals fun and curious facts about the remarkable geological history of Pt. Lobos.
On the date of the tour, meet at the entrance kiosk for an introduction to the geology of Pt. Lobos. From the kiosk our group will walk about a half mile to the South Shore, to see the deposits of undersea landslides and avalanches. Although fossil shells are extremely rare in the rocks of Pt. Lobos, the ancient sea floor supported a rich fauna that left their traces in the sediment. This tour will end by retracing the trails that led to the South Shore. Please dress in layers and wear comfortable shoes or hiking boots. In the event of rain, this event could be cancelled. 
This event will take place at Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, located at 62 Highway 1in Carmel. Parking can be found along Highway 1 outside the reserve.
