Whether you are a teacher seeking professional development CEUs, licensure, or you are an interested community member, Marylhurst invites you to participate in this two week hands-on workshop to learn that each rock and landform in the Pacific Northwest has a story to tell.

Investigate and appreciate the process and products of geology and geologic events that occur on scales beyond ordinary human experience. This continuing education workshop incorporates studies and activities that build a foundation for field experiences in geology. Acquired knowledge and skills will be applied in the field to give relevance to an understanding of our earth and its ever-changing landscape. Special emphasis will be placed on how geology affects ecology and the environment. This workshop will underscore the value of multidisciplinary approaches to the study of science.

For licensed teachers seeking continuing education or licensure. Interested community members are also welcome to enroll.  This workshop has no prerequisites. Three CEUs.
