Symposium Field Trip: The Tectonics and Precambrian Geology of the Front Range between Golden and Marshall

Lead by Robert J. Weimer and Lisa A. Lytle
Colorado School of Mines

Sunday, 4 April 2004

The Colorado Scientific Society is presenting a field trip in conjunction with the Symposium of the Geology of the Front Range. The field trip will examine the tectonic features along the margin and some of the Precambrian features of within the Front Range between Golden and Marshall. Bob Weimer and Lisa Lytle are the primary field trip leaders, and speakers from the symposium are encouraged to provide additional commentary. The cost of the trip is $30, which includes transportation, handouts, lunch, and snacks. Since the available space is limited, only members of the Colorado Scientific Society will be able to register for the trip.

Bus departure Saturday, April 4: Those who live in Longmont, Loveland, and Boulder can meet the bus at 7:30 AM at the Foothills Park and Ride at the SE corner of the Foothills Parkway and Pearl Street intersection in Boulder.

Meet at 8:15 AM for an 8:30 AM departure from the Cold Spring Park and Ride at the corner of 6th Avenue and Simms, on the northwest corner of the Federal Center. Meet on the east side of the parking lot.

Bus return: We hope to return to the Cold Springs Park and Ride no later than 5 PM, and the Foothills Park and Ride no later than 6 PM. In case of bad weather, the status of the field trip will be announced at the symposium.
