Geology of the Amargosa Region
7:30pm – 9:30pm
Sepulveda Garden Center
16633 Magnolia Blvd., Encino, CA 91436
Presented by Bill Neill
The barren and colorful Amargosa desert southeast of Death Valley is not only a geologist’s playground, but is important ecologically due to perennial water flow through Amargosa Canyon. Bill Neill will outline the area’s long and dramatic geological history that is representative of western North America, then close by describing the transition since the 1970’s from a mining economy to eco-tourism.
Bill studied geology at UCLA and Stanford University, then was employed as a petroleum engineer for 20 years, and has been active for 36 years on controlling invasive wildland weeds and exotic trees in natural areas. He has served as co-president of the LA/SMM CNPS Chapter since January, and as a director of the Amargosa Conservancy since 2014.
