Explore one of Central Oregon's defining features--the Newberry Caldera. Registration for this program is full. This is an in-person program. Registration is required. Masks are recommended at all in-person library events.
Newberry Caldera: Here you are standing in the bottom of a volcano! Many short hikes await! Whether Paulina Peak, and it's 8,000-foot summit, a walk on a mountain of black glass to learn how Native Americans traded this valuable obsidian around the continent or hiking along the shores of sparkling Paulina Lake to traverse an old growth hemlock forest, we will be immersed in the natural and cultural history of this incredible National Monument.
