Pictorial Guide to Natural Disasters

A new exhibit “Living on the Edge,” opens at the San Bernardino County Museum on Saturday, March 17. Visitors will get an opportunity for a behind-the-scenes look at the exhibit when Senior Curator of Geological Sciences Kathleen Springer and Curator of History Michele Nielsen give a special gallery talk, “Pictorial Guide to Natural Disasters” on Sunday, March 18 at 2:00 p.m. The exhibit and the gallery talk are free with museum admission.

This exhibit examines fires, floods, earthquakes, mud flows, and their sources in the natural world, all based in the geologic and biological make-up of our region. The human component of disasters, including disaster preparedness and what some communities are doing to equip themselves to successfully “live on the edge,” are also featured in the exhibit. In their gallery talk, Springer and Nielsen will present an action-packed historical review of natural disasters in the inland Southern California.

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays and holiday Mondays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $6 (adult), $5 (student or senior), and $4 (child aged 5 to 12).
