Coastal Mountains Nature Prog.

Event Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Camden Public Library
55 Main St., Camden

Coastal Mountains Nature Program presents LiDAR – Revealing Maine’s Secrets at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 28 at the Camden Public Library. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) uses laser beams to image the earth’s surface (and other objects) to produce a very accurate and detailed representation of the land surface. Amber Whittaker, Senior Geologist for the Maine Geological Survey, will explain what LiDAR is, how it can be used, and the fascinating discoveries made with this technology. About the Speaker: Whittaker is a native Mainer, who earned her BSc in Earth Sciences from the University of Maine, MSc in Earth and Planetary Sciences from the University of New Mexico. She has worked all over the world, from the coast of Maine, the desert Southwest, European Alps, Southern Alps, to Antarctica, doing field work and working in labs and on computers to solve various geologic problems, from deep subduction zone processes to uranium exploration to water scarcity in the desert. In her current work as a Senior Geologist at the Maine Geological Survey Whittaker conducts bedrock mapping and assembles the bedrock geologic maps for publication. The Coastal Mountains Nature Program is co-hosted by Coastal Mountains Land Trust and the Town of Camden Conservation Commission. The program hosts walks and talks exploring the natural history of Midcoast Maine to educate the public about environment issues and to increase opportunities for residents to explore this region. Coastal Mountains Land Trust has worked since 1986 to permanently conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of the western Penobscot Bay. The Land Trust has protected over 10,000 acres to date, and created 45 miles of permanent trails for public access.
