Event description

Description

From the swirling sands of Kelso Dunes to Hole-in-the-Wall’s violent volcanic remnants, Mojave National Preserve serves as a showcase of ancient and modern geologic processes. Rocks here reveal the stories of prehistoric landscapes as old as 2.7 billion years - over half the age of the Earth! Explore and learn about the geology of the vast Mojave National Preserve with Ted Reeves, on this overnight camping excursion with a base camp at the Hole-In-The-Wall campground. You will need to provide your own camping equipment, food and drinks as there are few facilities in this national preserve. This class will take you to spectacular locations within the Mojave National Preserve including the newly re-opened Mitchell Caverns. Course fee includes the entrance fee for the caverns. Don’t miss out on this opportunity! Class size is limited to 12 participants.
