Making North America

Can you describe how California came into being? How about the Great Plains? In this meeting we’ll be learning the answers to these questions and more from the highly acclaimed Nova DVD, Making North America….

 

“Mighty, elemental forces molded North America. Fiery eruptions, titanic floods, the grinding of great ice sheets, and massive impacts from space all shaped our land. Now, for the first time, NOVA presents a bold and sweeping biography of our continent and how it came to be. 

This epic story unfolds in a forgotten world that existed long before our own, crossed by long-lost mountain ranges, deserts the size of Africa, and vast inland seas spanning the length of the continent. Beloved landmarks like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and the Rockies are explored from the inside out as we witness the clash of nature's creative and destructive forces - the uplifting of the earth's crust and the violent eruptions, earthquakes, and impacts that destroy it.”

Come join us for this fun and informative evening!
