Geology Club

We also have an active Geology Club open to all who are interested in earth science. Most of our activities focus on geology field trips within our region. We also run an annual jet boat trip for community members, on which we explore the geology of Hells Canyon. Contact a member of the Earth Science faculty if you are interested in joining the Geology Club.
