Although we have not yet seen any white stuff in the air, or even had a frost in most of our region, it appears it is time to announce the closure of our field season and start thinking about next year. Our trips in 2014 are listed on the webpage, but for a quick summary, how about these numbers!
- We participated as a club in 21 field events between late March and mid-October.
- Eight trips were weekend or multi-day trips involving overnight stays (with two campouts).
- Although the majority was in search of minerals, we had 7 trips targeting fossils.
- We ventured to St. Lawrence County 5 times and to Ontario, Canada twice.
Several folks led individual trips this year, but our Field Trip Leader, Bill Chapman, planned and ran most of them. Many thanks to Bill for a wonderful field season.
As for 2015, we have some ideas of new places to go and we will return to many of this year’s sites, but we would love to hear from you where you would like to go. Anyone can lead a trip!
