    Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue (TVF&R) - Station 17, 31370 NW Commercial St, North Plains, OR 97133, USA

    Have you heard of the Gales Creek Fault and always wanted to know more about it? Where is it? Is it active? Who is studying it, and what could it tell us?
    Our featured speaker, Dr. Ray Wells, a Research Geologist Emeritus at the U.S. Geological Survey, will help us explore these questions. Dr. Wells is passionate about geology and is a recognized expert in the field. He has just completed a 20 year-long project to produce a geologic map of the greater Portland area, from the Cascade foothills to the Coast Range. The map encompasses 2500 square miles, including the Gales Creek Fault. He will share his experience and also share how you can identify surface expressions of geologic features that might help you better understand and manage your forest property.
