Dewey Talks about the Ice Age Floods (and Wilsonville!)

Ice Age Floods

The Ice Age Floods

How were the Columbia Gorge and Willamette Valley formed? Where did all our water come from? What effect did the Ice Age Floods have on Wilsonville?

Join us Wednesday, June 2, at 6:30 p.m. for a conversation about these questions with Mark Buser, President of the Columbia Chapter of the Ice Age Institute. He will talk about the impact of the ice age floods and how they changed the land we call home. This program is hosted and sponsored by the Wilsonville Public Library.

Could you be an archaeologist?

Find out with State Archaeologist Nancy Nelson on Wednesday, May 26, at 6:30 p.m. at the library. Nancy will share the wonders of Native American life on the Oregon Coast and talk about what life is really like on an archaeological dig.
