Geologist/Paleontologist Dr. Randolph Moses will be the featured speaker at the Johnson County Historical Society on Wednesday, March 12, 6:30 p.m. at the JC Library. Dr. Moses will talk about the geological history of the Trailside area of the Big Horn Mountains.
Long recognized for the uniqueness of the geology, the Bighorn uplift is known for its crustal displacement which reveals rocks that range in age from Archean to Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic (approx. 3.8 billion years ago to approx. 10,000 years ago). Moses’ presentation will be followed by group participation in the stories of Trailside.
JCHS meetings are open to the public. As a chapter of the WY State Historical Society, JCHS members have access to statewide information and documents. For more information call Sylvia Bruner at the museum at 307-684-9331.
