Living in Earthquake Country

Kathleen Springer, senior curator of geological sciences at the San Bernardino County Museum, will give a primer on the San Andreas Fault during a gallery talk at the museum on Saturday, December 3 at 2 p.m. At the talk, which is free with museum general admission, visitors will learn where the fault is, why it is there, how it has sculpted our environment, and how it might affect our lives in the event of a large quake.

“My talk will emphasize how to prepare for an earthquake,” said Springer, “and I’ll discuss building codes, building materials, and the substrate of this region relative to riding out The Big One.” She will also share copies of “Putting Down Roots in Earthquake Country,” which visitors will be able to take home and use to help themselves prepare for inevitable earthquakes. Springer will also do an on-line demonstration on how to retrieve a wide variety of information from the Southern California Earthquake Center's web site.
