|Summer Field Trips and Tours|
|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
During the months of May through October, the Geological Society of Minnesota (GSM) conducts a series of professionally-guided, statewide and regional field trips. These are one-to-three day excursions made to points of geologic interest not usually experienced by the casual traveler. They afford a very memorable and satisfying learning experience as there are always plenty of hands-on and question-answering opportunities. Frequently, the nature of the site allows the collecting of field samples. A comradery with enthusiastic learners and people curious about their natural environment is always a reward in itself. There is a small charge for any shared expense, and a liability waiver must be signed for each participant.
Lately, on alternate years, there has been an extended two-week national field trip to a fascinating and scenic region of great geologic interest. These trips are thoroughly prepared, professionally guided, and extremely inexpensive, so that many members have come to plan their summer vacations around them. Again, a liability waiver must be signed for each participant.
Participation in GSM field trips and tours is usually limited and advanced registration is required. Scheduled excursions are listed on the GSM web site: http://www.gsmn.org (and click on FIELD TRIPS).
