Geology of the Mount Shasta Area
Mount Shasta is one of the largest of the High Cascade stratovolcanoes and has an eruptive history that spans the past 700,000 years. This course will introduce the tectonic setting, eruptive history, and potential hazards of Mount Shasta as well as briefly exploring the ancient basement rocks that may underlie it and influence the chemistry of some of its lavas. Although basement rocks are poorly exposed on and around the mountain, scattered outcrops and the chemistry of some flank lavas suggest it stands atop serpentinite and marine sedimentary and volcanic rocks of the Eastern Klamath terrane.

The Art of Mount Shasta Wildflowers
Join us for a botanical exploration on the spring-fed slopes of Mount Shasta, rich with summer flowers. Using the paintings of Edward Stuhl and the field guide Mount Shasta Wildflowers, students will learn to identify local flowers by common and scientific names as they hike and become familiar with botanical nomenclature. During our trip to a wildflower-filled meadow at the base of the mountain, we’ll also learn some of the medicinal uses, ecology, propagation, restoration and symbiotic relationships of native plants, and our guide will provide general information about backcountry stewardship, local history, and bird identification.

Birding Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park by Kayak
We’ll have a unique opportunity to observe fall bird migration in a wilderness area “where the waters come together…” Located in eastern Shasta County, California, Ahjumawi derives its name from a large system of freshwater springs created by the mingling of Big Lake, Tule River, Ja- She Creek, Lava Creek and Fall River. This wilderness area of lava rock and flowing waters features both sagebush and juniper populations as well as coniferous and oak forests. It is accessible only by boat. We will hopefully observe resident and fall migratory birds, including Lewis’s and Nutall’s Woodpeckers, Oak Titmice, Short-eared and Northern Pygmy Owls, as well as ducks and possibly Lawrence’s Goldfinch. We may also glimpse other wildlife including mule deer, bear and cougar as we travel by kayak and on foot within view of Mount Shasta and Lassen Peak. We'll camp in one of three primitive campgrounds. Kayaks provided by Eagle Eyes Kayak Guiding Service. Read More
