PASCO, Wash. - A piece of ancient history now sits in the lobby of the math and science building at Columbia Basin College in Pasco.
"He called it a true miracle of nature," said Gayle Kerr. "We believe Kyle would be pleased knowing that his ‘treasure' was moved to CBC where it will continue being preserved and students can enjoy it for many years to come."
Starkey is believed to have found the log in the late 1950s near Grand Coulee Dam. Starkey, who worked for a crane company, brought the log home and kept it in his front yard until now.
"It gives the environmental sciences club a good project, they're excited," said Rod Taylor, CBC's dean for math, science and engineering. "It's also a great showpiece when you walk into our building; you see it right when you walk through the door."
Taylor said the club plans to figure out the species of the log and learn more about where exactly it was found.
