Experiential Learning in the Desert

March 11th, 2011

As Dr. Wilson so gleefully pointed out today, the last several blog posts have been about fossils. I think it’s about time for a change of subject, don’t you?

Spring break officially begins tomorrow, and this is what Wooster looks like tonight:

A view of the snow covered street from my living room. I had to take the picture tonight because Dr. Wilson would have undoubtedly beat me to it in the morning.

The Wooster Geologists are ready to leave all of the snow behind! In a few short days, we’ll be headed to the warm and sunny Mojave Desert. The Desert Studies Center will serve as our base camp while we explore Death Valley, the Mojave National Preserve, and Barstow, CA (Dr. Wilson’s hometown). We invite you to follow us on our week-long adventure. Be on the lookout for posts that feature blue skies, stunning vistas, and geologists learning about the desert through direct experience. (It’s good to be a geologist.)

    Indeed! I was ready with photos! The desert will be a nice change from icy Ohio. Well played, Dr. Pollock.
