2016 State 4-H Geology Field Trip

Submitted by Evelyn Neier

The State 4-H Geology Field Trip will be held June 10-12, 2016. This year one trip, based in Minneola, will be offered. Participants will collect Cretaceous through Quaternary rocks, minerals and fossils from the Champion Draw area of Kiowa County through the chalk beds of Gove County.

The state trip provide excellent opportunities for youth in the Geology project to learn more about the geology of Kansas, interact with trained geologists and geology leaders, go on collecting trips, participate in quiz bowl and judging contest events, and attend workshops.

Everyone attending the trips (adults and youth) must register online through C-vent. Detailed information about the trip will be posted on the Geology Field Trip page. Registration opens April 20, 2016. The registration deadline is May 22, 2016.
