Geology Field Trips

Field trips are an important part of any geologist's education. In addition to having field trips in many of our classes, we have a 12-15 day Regional Geology excursion each year to a different part of the country (or even other countries). Past trips have included visits to Colorado, Texas, Wyoming, Minnesota, Quebec, Nevada, Utah, Ontario, Florida, and more. Below are a few photos from some of our regional trips.
