Students: Take advantage of a unique opportunity! Field drilling & sampling workshop Saturday, Sept. 14

In addition to learning about different types of drills, drill equipment and sampling methods, you will also be introduced to field documentation (logging) of drill activities and sampling, which will include discussion and hands-on testing using the Unified Soils Classification System visual-manual procedure (which is also not taught as part of the geology curriculum in most universities).

To help us reach our goal, please donate now!
