Field Trips

There will be no field trips in person this year, but many of the field trip organizers have uploaded their field trip stops to Flyover Country, a mobile app created by Shane Loeffler and others at the University of Minnesota.

This app allows you to explore the geology and natural history below your flight, along a hike, or on a field trip. The app is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and available for free on both Android and iOS. GSA has also collaborated with Flyover to make former guidebooks available on this platform. You can learn more and download the app at
