We will examine the geologic events that shaped architecture of the Rogue Valley and surrounding foothills, specifically the origin and transformation of the Table Rocks. This field course begins with an introductory slide presentation at the Central Point Library, then continues in the field with a hike up the Upper Table Rock trail to the summit, then travel to various points of geologic and ecologic interest on its southeast arm. On our trip, we will observe mass-wasting processes of erosion as well as explore three distinct microhabitats that host diverse plant communities.
