The California Geological Survey-USGS information center in Menlo Park is offering free outdated topographical maps for holiday wrapping paper.
"These colorful maps, at 24 inches by 30 inches, are an ideal size for many gifts," says John Parrish, state geologist of California. "They have a distinctive look, and, of course, the price is right."
The center, at 345 Middlefield Road in Menlo Park, also has many gift items, including maps, books and digital products. For more information, call 688-6327.
