Owyhee Geology Field Trip Series

 Join our mailing list to receive our quarterly newsletter, first chance at trip registration, and hear about last minute Owyhee related events!

The content is meant to be broad with detail: covering plenty of basics, making first hand observations, some interpretations, and using work of previous mapping to supplement. This trip would be good for rockhounds interested in geologic history, students from 8th - College and anyone in-between!

Sammy Castonguay is trained field geologist and college instructor. In 2016, Tim and Sammy first teamed up for the annual Succor Creek Geology Weekend. After many successful years and full-trips, plus Sammy working as Program Director, we decided to expand the geoscience field trip to this 9 part series. 

The geology of the Owyhee is very diverse, containing geologic formations in the billions of years near the top of the watershed to geologically young formations only 10s of millions of years old. 

On November 18th, Sammy will give a public presentation summarizing the trips [6:30 pm, location TBD].
