Upcoming Field Trip –
Lake Wales Ridge Sand Pits –
15 January 2022

Registration is Closed

The deadline to register was January 13, 2022. 

We are excited to once again be hosting a Field Trip to the sand pits of Lake Wales Ridge courtesy of long-time SEGS member Marc Hurst and colleagues at C.C. Calhoun, Inc. This is an opportunity to learn about Plio-Pleistocene Cypresshead Formation sands and do some fulgurite hunting.

Participation is limited to SEGS members who have paid 2022 dues (and their guests) and geology students (become a member here).

Student Members – Apply to the Funded Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Cave and Karst Science

The UROCKS (Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Cave and Karst Science) program is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) designed to provide opportunities for undergraduate students to engage in independent mentored research projects. These projects will involve one or more aspects of Cave and Karst Science, along with professional development workshops, karst science seminars, and social events.

The program is currently funded for three summers (2022-2024), and will host ten students each summer.
