Yolo Audubon’s first online program of the year takes you on a virtual tour of the Berryessa Region with Marc Hoshovsky, co-author of the new book, Exploring the Berryessa Region: A Geology, Nature, and History Tour. Marc will give us an understanding of the Berryessa Region, particularly the geological story that has created this fascinating landscape. He’ll explain the formation of features that most people have seen, like the vertical sandstone beds at Monticello Dam, plus others that many haven’t noticed before. Then with this new knowledge, viewers will be taken on a virtual photo tour of the area, enticing them to learn more about its geology, nature, and history.

Marc Hoshovsky is a retired naturalist living in Davis. After spending 30 years working for state government on endangered species habitat conservation, he’s now enjoying using his degrees in ecology and geology, and passion for photography, to help local conservation efforts.
