Second year field schools under way

Thirty students have embarked on the Environmental Science and Geology field schools. Brisk, but sunny weather greeted participants on the first couple of days, here at the glass sand outcrop in Fall Brook quarry.


After three days learning the techniques of geological mapping, the group will split, with the Environmental Science majors participating in a wide variety of exercises in the biological and ecological realms, while the Geology majors will continue with more complex geological exercises both locally and on the North Shore of Nova Scotia near Merigomish.
