NATIONAL DAY CALENDAR CLASSROOM – WEEK 24 – March 4 -10, 2018
Every week since the week after Independence Day, National Day Calendar has been recognizing each of the fifty states. This week we recognize the 33rd state, Oregon. We also recently recognized California on February 22. In the coming weeks, we will recognize Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii. What’s unique about these states is they all have volcanoes that have erupted in recent recorded history. Through National Oregon Day, explore volcanoes in America.
Take a tour of the volcanos in Oregon.
Many recognize the majestic white shroud of Mount Hood. Crater Lake’s beauty is legendary. Gorda Ridge is currently dormant but last erupted in 1996.
