Geologist Ken Lajoie will discuss the origins of the San Francisco Bay at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at the San Mateo County History Museum.
He will describe how, at the height of the last ice age, there was no bay, and how the earth's warming led to its creation. During the ice age, camels, mammoths, ground sloths and bison thrived in the Bay Area.
The program is free with the price of admission to the museum: $5 for general admission and $3 for students and seniors. The museum is located at 2200 Broadway in downtown Redwood City.
