The Geography And Geology Of What Makes Volcan Mountain Would you like to know more about the geology and geography of the Volcan Mountain and the area surrounding Julian? Please attend a on Saturday, April 12 at 10:30 AM at the Julian Library to hear a presentation by retired State Park Ranger, Fred Jee. With a degree in Physical G e o g r ap hy/G e o m o r p h o l o g y and a minor in Earth Science under his belt, Fred Jee began his career with the California State Parks as a State Park Ranger. He trained as a Ranger at the beaches of San Elijo/ South Carlsbad and Torrey Pines State Reserve. In 1975, he was Fred Jee assigned as Park Ranger to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, later becoming Supervising Ranger. During this period, Mr. Jee gave many lectures on geology to the public as well as, he says, “learning much from visiting scientists doing their studies at the park”. During his tenure as a Park Ranger in Borrego, he also became involved as chair of the building committee that oversaw the construction of the lovely Santa Fe style office of the current Chamber of Commerce building. Some time ago, he was named Honorary Mayor of Borrego. Jee is also involved in the Borrego Performing Arts Center, where you will often find him serving as the Master of Ceremony. Obviously, Mr. Jee is committed to making his community the best it can be, along with being dedicated to sharing his earth sciences knowledge with park visitors and he previously has spoken at the Julian Branch library on a different topic. Fred Jee lives in Borrego with his wife, Louise. “The general geology of this region of San Diego county and Southern California is both complex and fascinating”, he explained, when inviting him to come to the Julian library. He has an engaging way of reaching his audience, sprinkled with a good sense of humor. For more information, please call the Julian branch library at 760.765-0370. The library is located at 1850 Highway 78 next to the high school.. The Volcan Mountain foundation and the Julian Friends of the Library are sponsoring this program. All are welcome to attend.
