150 Million Years in the Making

Posted by The College of Science at OSU on January 14, 2009

OSU Geologists contributed to a new exhibit at the capitol building in Salem.

With help from geologists at OSU, the Oregon Historical Society unveiled a new exhibit – called “150 Years of Statehood; 150 Million Years in the Making’ – in the capitol building in Salem.

The displays, which are spread along four banks of windows near the information desk at the capitol, took more than two years to organize.

The Capitol building is located at 900 Court Street NE in Salem and is open from 8am-5pm, Monday-Friday.  To celebrate Oregon’s 150th birthday, there will be a family day at the Capitol on Saturday, February 14th — a perfect opportunity to check out the display! Watch their website for more information.
