The Missoula Flood- It Forever Changed the Pacific Northwest

Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 7:30PM at the Sprague Community Theater

During the last ice age, 18,000 years ago, a giant lake in Western Montana broke through a huge ice dam 2,000 feet high and released a cataclysmic flood. The content of this flood was more than Lake Erie and Lake Ontario combined. These flood waters, hundreds of feet high and traveling at over 50 miles per hour forever changed the landscape of four states.
Bob Setterberg, from the Oregon Historical Society, will take us on an incredible journey from Montana to the mouth of the Columbia River, a journey that radically altered the Northwest's topography. 
The Bandon Historical Society, an affiliate of the Oregon Historical Society is providing this presentation with FREE ADMISSION thanks to our sponsor, Chas Waldrop Real Estate.
