Newberry Volcano: Our Backyard Giant

Mighty Newberry Volcano is the largest Ice Age volcano by volume in the Northwest.  Since it is not filled with water, the caldera is perhaps an even better geological study area than its spectacular southern neighbor, Crater Lake. With an unsurpassed diversity of geology, botany, and geography, some of the Northwest’s rarest plants and animals dwell here.  Learn about this local geologic wonder and its deep history from Stu Garrett, the driving force behind its permanent protection and designation as a National Monument in November 1990.
