Ice Age Flood Features Near Richland, Washington

Team Battelle volunteers and the Lake Lewis Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute completed a second edition of the road guide, Ice Age Flood Features Near Richland,Washington. Copies of the map are available through the Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau. Links to a Google Maps version and a downloadable PDF version of the first-edition road guide are provided below.

The second edition guide describes two routes for self-guided tours of Ice Age flood features and local wineries within 20 miles of Richland, Washington. Nine stops are identified where evidence of these cataclysmic floods can be observed first hand. The guide also provides background information on the origin and destructive power of the Ice Age floods as well as their impact on the terroir of Washington's primary wine producing regions. Printing of the map was largely paid for by the City of Richland.
