Join us for a photographic excursion along the sandy beaches and rocky headlands of the beautiful California coast. Our guide is geologist, teacher, and nature photographer John Karachewski. John’s spectacular photographs of coastal areas highlight depositional and erosional landscapes from Orange County to Crescent City. John will explain the natural processes that shape these coastal landscapes, including waves, beaches, bays, estuaries, and sea-level rise. You’ll come away with a new appreciation for this dynamic setting and ideas for future trips in coastal parks.
John Karachewski provides geologic and GIS support for the California-EPA (DTSC) in Berkeley. John has conducted geology and environmental projects throughout the western US from Colorado to Alaska to Midway Island and throughout California. John enjoys teaching at Diablo Valley College, Emeritus College, and leading field trips for the Point Reyes National Seashore Association and Oakland Museum of California. Doris Sloan and John collaborated on a popular book about the “Geology of the San Francisco Bay Region.” John is an avid hiker, mountain biker, and backpacker. He enjoys photographing landscapes during the magic light of sunrise and sunset.
