Watch a Little Oregon Geology on OPB-TV

OPB-TV logo with Oregon Field GuideOregon Field Guide is part of OPB-TV and is a long-time program for naturalists. Among its many award-winning programs and segments are some outstanding sessions on geology in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.

For example, the Building the MAX-Line Tunnel episode takes you into the geology uncovered during the building of the Highway 26 Tunnel between Portland and Beaverton. On display in the tunnel station for the Children’s Discovery Museum and Oregon Zoo are core samples removed from that excavation, detailing the geological history of the area.

Most of these are featured on the Oregon Field Guide website for free viewing, and I highly recommend it if you are worn out watching Breaking Bad and Downtown Abbey reruns.
