Greenbelt Land Trust - Island in the Sky Geology Walk

  • Fitton Green County Natural Area 980 NW Panorama Drive Corvallis, OR 97330 (map)

Join Greenbelt Land Trust for a walk with geologist, Robert J. (Bob) Lillie, as you take a journey up Fitton Green and through geological time. You'll learn about the forces, including volcanic eruptions, tectonic plates, and erosion, that formed Oregon’s spectacular mountains, valleys, and coastlines. Bob draws on his experience as a geology professor, park ranger, and graphic illustrator to tell the geological story of the Corvallis region and its connections to Oregon’s natural and cultural history.

Fitton Green Natural Area, sitting on a prominent grassy bald above Philomath, was acquired with funding assistance from land protection leaders and Greenbelt founders Charlie and Elsie Fitton Ross in 1988, and grew with several acquisitions over 10 years. Greenbelt Land Trust retains a conservation easement over 143 acres of the 308 acre Natural Area, and works alongside Benton County Natural Areas and Parks on the management of this important community property.
