Geology of the Baldwin Hills
The geology of the Baldwin Hills has been studied extensivly for two
reasons. First, there is oil in them thar hills, and secondly, the
Baldwin Hills Dam Collapse of 1963 (see the history page of this site)
has been extensivly studied.
Information on the geology of the Baldwin Hills as it relates to the
Dam Collaps can be found at:
I have only started to work on this page, and there is a lot more
information that will be added in the future. I will be adding fault
maps and other information.
About this site:
On this web site you will find information about the Baldwin Hills
Park plan, geology, plants, and wildlife within the planned park,
neigboring communities, and activities at the parks that already exist
within the boundaries of the planned Baldwin Hills Park. This is not
an official site of the park, and I ask for help from anyone that can
correct any information I might post, or who has additional links or
resources to suggest.
