Visitors are invited to the San Bernardino County Museum on Sunday, September 28 at 2pm, for a presentation by Senior Curator of Geology Kathleen Springer, "The Great California Shakeout." This presentation is free with museum admission.

"Southern Californians literally live on the edge thanks to the San Andreas fault," said Springer. "Earthquakes occur frequently within the San Andreas system-more than 200 earthquakes greater than 6.0 magnitude are known since 1769. However, the southern section of the main trace of the San Andreas Fault has not broken since the huge Fort Tejonquake in 1857."

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission is $6 (adult), $5 (student or senior), and $4 (child aged 5 to 12). Children under five and Museum Association members are admitted free. Parking is free. For more information, visit www.sbcountymuseum.org or call (909) 307-2669.
