PUBLIC GEOLOGICAL FIELD TRIPS: INTERESTED IN ORGANIZING A TRIP IN YOUR AREA?
If you have a desire to organize a public field trip in your area, you may be interested in our success stories and, maybe more importantly, our lessons learned. The logistics of planning a field trip for 100 people or more can seem daunting, but the results are well worth the effort. Details to consider include your field trip team, the location, the guide book, setting the date, costs, registration, hotel, vehicles, meals, and more. Liability and safety issues will be discussed as well as how to travel with a large group from site to site. Let’s get more of the public outside to appreciate geology and what it brings to society!
