Sliding scale donations benefit Bolinas Museum and PRNSA

Does Earth have a memory? (… and if it does, what does it remember?) How do we make sense of a story extending 4.5 billion years into the past? And what events in that long history have left their marks most indelibly on the planet we call home. Please join us in a fun and engaging introduction to the concept of deep time, presented as a backdrop for better understanding not only the world of the past, but also the world of today, and where we might be headed in the world of tomorrow. 

Don Jolley is a recently retired teacher of Maths and Sciences. His career spanned three decades at the Bolinas School where he developed a robust program in outdoor education, leading students and their parents into the mountains and deserts in California, and across the Western Interior to the Colorado Plateau. He has been a resident of West Marin since 1979, and currently lives in Inverness Park with his wife Cenize and their beloved dog Zion.

Former Bolinas-Stinson Union School District science teacher Don Jolley has been featured in many Bolinas Museum exhibitions and popular educational programs bridging art and science. Stay tuned for new Bolinas Museum virtual programs with Don Jolley featuring the intersection of art and science. 

This event is a collaboration with Point Reyes National Seashore Association. Instruction and webinar link will be provided upon registration.
