Event description

Description

California is known for the Gold Rush, but a much more prolific resource played a central role in making California the economic powerhouse it is today: Oil. This is the story of the transformaton of a small, agrarian state into what is today's number three oil producer in the US, and the risk-taking, hard work, and innovating spirit of the entrepreneurs -- and geologists -- who made it happen. It is a classic story of how science can contribute to industry and modern society.

This is a free event. However, a RESERVATION IS REQUIRED to attend.
