Professor Donn Charnley

Friends of the Lopez Library and the San Juan Islands National Monument invite you to join Professor Emeritus of Geology Donn Charnley for another wonderful look at the geology that shapes our world.  In this program, Professor Charnley examines the geological processes that produced our beautiful beaches and provides suggestions that will guide your own discovery of these unique geologic features. Lopez Island has some of the most interesting shoreline features in the San Juan Islands and walking our beaches or viewing the rocky shoreline from a boat are favorite past-times of many.  Your beach combing will never be the same! Donn has taught geology for 50 years and also served in the Washington State legislature from 1970-1984. He is a favorite speaker on Lopez and we look forward to another terrific evening of science and exploration. This program is part of the SOL, Science (Summer) on Lopez series at your library this summer. Look for additional science programs this summer.  See you there!
