Join us Wednesday, August 14 at 6 p.m. when Jamie Farrell, assistant research professor at the Department of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Utah, presents "Shake, Rattle, and Roll: An Update on the Status of the Yellowstone Volcanic System and its World Famous Geysers."

Upon first visiting the Yellowstone area on a fly fishing trip, Jamie fell in love with the area and its geological features. This led to a change in major to geology then graduate studies with a focus on seismology. Since that first trip to Yellowstone, Jamie has visited hundreds of times and still considers the park one of his all-time favorite travel destinations due to its endless fascinating features.
