MBGS Field Trips
MBGS typically runs 1-3 fields trips per year. These are often the highlight of the year. These Field Trips run the gambit as wide as the field of geology is from Precambrian hard rock and mining to Paleozoic sedimentary stratigraphy to Pleistocene glacial geology, to karst and caving to fossil and mineral collecting field trips.
MBGS is seeking input from members for up and coming field trips Stay tuned for dates of new 2020/2021 events
