The first Mount Baker Volcano Research Center geology field trip of 2012 is announced over on the MBVRC blog.
The trip will head up the North Fork Nooksack and visit the Pinus Lake lava flow, the Wells Creek formation (subducted sea floor basalt), the gigantic Church Mountain Landslide, an older and larger version of the Racehorse Creek landslide, and Nooksack Falls. The trip will be led by Doug McKeever, geology Professor at Whatcom Community College. The first ten people have already signed up and the trip will reach its limit of 26 quickly so click here to learn more about the trip and how to sign up.
