Between Paradise and Peril

We are blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth, but living in paradise can also present challenges!

Please join us when UCSC Professor Gary Griggs discusses the fascinating natural disaster history of the Monterey Bay, from earthquakes and landslides to floods, droughts, El Ninos, and cliff erosion as described in his new book entitled Between Paradise and Peril.
