Ice Age megaflooding was the subject of Dr. Vic Baker’s presentation to more than 90 members of the Wenatchee Erratics Tuesday evening.

Baker comes from the University of Arizona, has been involved in studying the great Missoula floods for more than thirty years. He noted that J Harlan Bretz thought these floods were unique.
