Glass Buttes Day Trip

with Flint knapping workshop by Ryan Griffin and geology overview by Bob Timmer

Monday, October 17, 2022

Sign-up will start Monday, October 3rd

There are at least nine different types of obsidian in two massive mountains at Glass Buttes and Little Glass Buttes, just a two hour drive from Bend. Ryan Griffin, BLM archaeologist will speak to its significance and show us how Native Americans crafted it into tools and Bob Timmer will tell us how it got there. After lunch members will receive a rock hounding map so they can collect obsidian on their own. Be sure you have good tires on your car. There’s obsidian everywhere!

More details to follow!
