Palos Verdes Geological History

“The Shape of Beauty”

What caused all the natural variation and beauty, from the rocky beaches and tide pools, to the steep cliffs, broad terraces, rolling hills, rugged canyons and crevices? What does the future hold?

My presentation to the Local History Club will address questions such as: What is responsible for the points and coves? What are the properties of the Palos Verdes fault? What areas should you avoid during an earthquake? What could Palos Verdes look like in 100,000 years?

I will begin with a picture tour of the Point Vicente Interpretive Center (picture above), Abalone Cove Shoreline Park, Forrestal Preserve and Ocean Trails. The Los Serenos de Point Vicente docents run the Interpretive Center and give tours for kids and adults at all four venues.

The talk is on Thursday 1/25 at 2:00 PM at the Malaga Cove Library, 2400 Via Campesina, Palos Verdes Estates.

All are welcome.
