Presidents Corner (February, 2022)
First of all, I would like to thank all of our members and corporate sponsors for your continued support. Our organization wouldn’t be what it is without you. I would like to especially thank our new corporate sponsors. It’s great to see new people get involved and show their support. If you have not renewed your membership or corporate sponsorship, or you would like to sign up for either, you can do so on our website.
Our next meeting will be held on Monday March 7th where one of the newest additions to CSULB’s geology department, Dr. Alyssa Abbey, will be presenting a talk entitled “A Growing Rift: Understanding the development of the Rio Grande rift through faulting and magmatism.“ As a CSULB alum, I personally am excited to see what she is up to, and I hope you are too!
Back before the pandemic we hosted a handful of popular events outside of our monthly meetings. One of which was the hike n brew. Now that we can gather safely, I would like to start organizing these again. If you know of any great local trails with interesting geology, please let us know. We would love to get out and explore what LA and Orange County so great.
Lastly, with a new year comes a new field trip. A couple of you have already come up and asked us questions about it. I really appreciate your curiosity and enthusiasm! With one scouting trip under our belt, and one coming up shortly, I can assure you that we will have a solid weekend planned filled with a variety of fun and interesting stops. We will formally announce the trip very soon!
