Welcome to the Geological Society of
New Hampshire

We are a group of geologists, professional geologists and people interested in geology. Our purpose is to advance the science of geology and the geologic sciences as a profession in New Hampshire. We publish four newsletters a year and host three dinner meetings with interesting speakers and a field trip each year. Check out our newsletter on the Publications page and click on Meetings and Events for our next gathering. If you are a teacher, click on the Outreach Activities button on the left for resources that we offer educators. We maintain a list of available opportunities for continuing education on the Continuing Education page. We also publish Job Listings as they come our way. We always welcome new members.

Grand Canyon Rafting Trip

July 6 to July 12, 2015

Next summer (2015), Fred Beck (Geological Society of Maine) and Alison Jones (GSM and Geological Society of Arizona) will be leading a raft trip through 188 miles of the Grand Canyon - - a 7 day trip on 2 motorized 34-foot inflatable rafts.  This will be the 7th trip for Alison and 6th for Fred.    We will be going “down section” from the late Permian into the Precambrian, and making numerous geologic and just fun stops along the way.   We will be camping out each night on sandy beach deltas.  As in the past, our trip will be run by Hatch River Expeditions, the oldest raft concessionaire in the Grand Canyon.

Hatch provides everything;  two rafts which each comfortably carry 16 people, all camping gear and food, and three licensed experienced guides who run the boats, do the cooking, and assure that everyone will have the experience of a lifetime.    In the past we have had about 50% geologists and the rest spouses, teen-aged children, or just people who want to learn about geology in perhaps the grandest classroom in the world.  It may be that this trip would qualify for continuing education credits for those who need these credits.

This trip has proved very popular and the available spots usually are all filled by late summer or early Fall.   A deposit of $500 is required to hold a spot.  The balance of $2450 is due in March.  In case of cancellation, the deposit will be returned if the spot can be filled.   Since we always have had a waiting list, we’ve never failed to fill vacated spots.  For more detailed information, contact Fred Beck at fmbeck@fmbeck.net, or Alison Jones at ajones@clearcreekassociates.com.
