Field Trips

Port Byron 1955

The ISGS offers a variety of field experiences each year.  Public geological field trips have been offered for over 85 years and continue today.  In partnership with the Unit 4 School District in Champaign, IL - every 5th grader in the district is led on a geological field trip to the Kickapoo State Park in the fall.  This effort will continue through 2016.  Throughout the year, geologists and scientists also conduct field trips for colleagues.  To learn more, click on the appropriate link in the upper right.
