Big Bend National Park, Texas: an Educational Spring Break

April 29th, 2008

In 2008, Cornell College’s Geology Club helped sponsor a trip for twelve students to Big Bend National Park in Texas. Big Bend hosts an array of impressive geologic features recording disparate events from Cretaceous deep-sea deposition to volcanic flows less then 30 million years old. This presentation will present a short history of the park’s geology as well as some of our favorite trip moments.
