Volcanos with Tom Alena

Volcanos with Tom Alena

Saturday, July 31, 2021

A new volcano in Iceland is erupting and, as many of you know, Gerri’s adopted homeland will soon be erupting with tourists hiking to see this spectacular display of Nature. But how is it possible to walk right up to some erupting volcanos (in relative safety), but others kill everyone within several miles (Mt. St Helens) instantly?  This presentation dives deep into the earth’s interior to take a look at what causes volcanic eruptions and why they differ.  We’ll look at rock and ash samples brought back from Iceland, and explode a few home-made volcanos for some educational entertainment.  3:00 p.m., ZOOM, Members: FREE, Non-members: $10.00. Pre-register at www.whitememorialcc.org. A link to the presentation will arrive via email when you register (check junk mail!).

Invasive plants and animals have been a fact of life in North America and worldwide since people began to travel.

Some are already here, while others we hope to keep away with knowledge, diligence, and safe practices. Dr. Rutledge knows a thing or two about wood-boring insects. They are her area of expertise. 10:00 a.m., FREE, Zoom and Facebook Live. Zoom participants register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_fl811FpVTOS1U4KNnOLoNg
