Educational and Outreach (E&O) activities began at PBO sites that have requested E&O involvement. At Sunrise Tree Farm in Philomath, Oregon, several school programs and community presentations were shared. This is a busy time of year for a site with a deep brace GPS monument (P375) that is eager for new educational materials and programs. Two different school groups with about 60 students ranging in age from seven years old to seventeen learned about the theory of plate tectonics, Oregon’s regional landforms and tectonic activity, and then the use of GPS. About 35 teachers, parents, staff members, and the general public also listened to the presentations covering the PBO mission, components of the GPS monument, and more. From their questions and enthusiasm, this site visit proved to be a success.
