Short Course: Geology of the Central Sierra Nevada, June 12-14: And What a Great Setting!

Have you ever had the desire to learn about the geology of the Sierra Nevada in a spectacular mountain setting. Baker Station near Sonora Pass just north of the Yosemite National Park is the home base of the High Sierra Institute, and my colleague Noah Hughes is teaching a short field course on the geology of the Sierra Nevada on June 12-14.

The High Sierra Institute is run by the Yosemite Community College District and the class is offered by Modesto Junior College. The institute is situated along the Stanislaus River at about 8,000 feet, a short distance downstream of Kennedy Meadows. The scenery nearby is on a grand scale.
The course is worth one unit of general education credit, and the total cost is a mere $20, plus about $46 for the registration. Previous experience in an earth science or geology course is recommended, but by no means required.
Time is short, so if you are interested, please contact Noah Hughes (209-575-6173) as soon as possible. Details of the course can be found here:  It will be a marvelous experience!

I can also answer questions about the course as well.
