Geologist Eldridge Moores and his wife, Judy, will lead a road trip through the eastern Coast Ranges to celebrate the summer solstice. The round-trip excursion will go from Davis to Napa and back by way of Wooden Valley and Rockville.

The trip will show off the geological history of California’s dynamic landscape. Participants will see volcanic rocks west of Winters, learn about subduction, find obsidian in Napa Valley, and get to touch a fault in Rockville. While older teens would enjoy the trip, it is not appropriate for children.

The car-pool trip is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 21. Participants need to provide their own lunches. There is a suggested donation of $35 to $40 per participant.

Donations may be directed to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis to support enhancing habitat for wildlife on the church grounds or to Cool Davis. Both are nonprofits. To sign up, contact Judy at jemoores@aol.com or 530-756-4639.
