Geology of the Upper Wenatchee River Valley

May 6 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join geologist Kelsay Stanton for a geologic tour in the Leavenworth area, up the Wenatchee River valley to Lake Wenatchee. We’ll look at everything from the local bedrock to the fluvial (stream) processes at work on the Icicle and Wenatchee Rivers, to the glacial features from both the Icicle Creek and Lake Wenatchee Glaciers. We’ll see the Leavenworth fault, identify glacial moraines, discuss how streams change with time, and examine 90 million old igneous rocks and even older metamorphic rocks!
