For several years, the KGS conducted a series of public field trips, taking participants to different parts of the state to get a hands-on look at the local rocks and fossils. Check out the photos and highlights from these trips, as well as online and downloadable guidebooks.
The public field trip program has been discontinued for the present.
Please note: The Kansas Department of Transportation has closed some collecting areas to the public, such as the K-4 and U.S. 24 interchange near Topeka. Be sure to confirm that areas described on these field trips are still open to the public, and please respect private property.
