Presentation: Down the Great Unknown: John Wesley Powell's ~1000 mile expedition down the Green and Colorado Rivers 150 years ago and USGS science today
Presenters: Eleanour Snow, Kristen Hamilton, and Annie Scott This webinar will address the 1869 journey of Civil War veteran John Wesley Powell to explore unmapped territory along the Green & Colorado Rivers, including Grand Canyon. We will discuss our plans, along with our partners, to conduct a modern expedition 150 years later this spring and summer (May 24-July 31). Our goals are to introduce new and diverse audiences to USGS science, to engage teachers and students, and to provide useful, relevant educational resources around the science of rivers.
