About This Project

An ash-laden fossil leaf deposit in Central Washington assigned to the Ellensburg Flora (12 to 10 million years old) is part of a transported landslide block that cannot be correlated with certainty. Some of the leaves found are unusual and not typical of the Ellensburg Flora, raising the question of whether the site is assigned properly. We have something unique; dating the samples will tell us which direction our research should go.
