Field Trips

Early October is prime field season in the upper Midwest. Our diverse slate of 43 field trips (20 premeeting, 6 during the meeting, and 17 postmeeting) span a geologically broad range of topics, including the Precambrian geology of the southern Canadian Shield; the economic geology of the Lake Superior region; Phanerozoic strata in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and North Dakota; glacial geology; hydrogeology and limnology; undergraduate and K–12 geoscience field education; the geology and hydrology of the Twin Cities metro area; geology by bicycle; terroir; geoarchaeology; biogeohydrochemistry; and tours of area research labs and vessels.

This year's field trip co-chairs are Jim Miller, George Hudak, Chad Wittkop, and Patrick McLaughlin. Please feel free to contact them or GSA's field trip coordinator, Beth Engle, , for more information. If you have questions about a particular trip, please contact the trip leaders directly.

All trips begin and end at the Minneapolis Convention Center unless otherwise indicated. Trip fees include transportation during the trip; other services, such as meals and lodging, are noted with each trip by the following: B—breakfast; L—lunch; R—refreshments; D—dinner; ON—overnight lodging. Some trips cross into Canada; participants should carry valid passports. All fees are in U.S. dollars.

Be sure to sign up for your trip(s) when you register to ensure that you'll be a part of the action!
