During the last ice age, 18,000 years ago, a giant lake in Western Montana broke through a huge ice dam 2,000 feet high and released a cataclysmic flood. The content of this flood was more than Lake Erie and Lake Ontario combined! Bob Setterberg, from the Oregon Historical Society, will take us on an incredible journey from Montana to the mouth of the Columbia River, a journey that radically altered the Northwest's topography! The Bandon Historical Society, an Oregon Historical Society affiliate, is providing this presentation with FREE ADMISSION thanks to our sponsor, Chas Waldrop Real Estate.
