Red Rock State Park – The World of the Permian Period
Presented by Dr. Kennard B. Bork
March 5th, 2017 (2:00 pm)
Program is included with the park admission
Red Rock State ParkJoin Red Rock State Park in welcoming Dr. Kennard B. Bork! The world of the PERMIAN Period (300 to 250 million years ago) would look quite alien to a modern observer. Most of the continents were together in a great landmass called Pangea. Reptiles and amphibians were the dominant land vertebrates, because dinosaurs and mammals would not appear for tens of millions of years. The young Appalachian Mountains had recently been created by continental collisions, but the birth events of the Rockies, Alps, and Himalayas were far in the future. Sedona sat near the equator as our famous Red Rocks were being formed. This session will look, in brief overview, at the Earth during that fascinating time. Please call the park ahead at 928.282.6907 to reserve your space. For more information please visit Red Rock State Park.
