Geology Field Trip to Whiskey Bridge by the Houston Geological Society

HGS sponsors this student-friendly field trip to Whiskey Bridge in Bryan, Texas. Participants meet on the south side of Whiskey Bridge, where Highway 21 crosses the Brazos River, to discuss geology and collect fossils.

For directions, locality information, collecting guides, and scientific papers, see the Houston Gem and Mineral Society.


These are great opportunities to share your love of Earth science with family and friends. HGS needs you to make these events successful. If you would like to volunteer at these events, please email the ESW committee contact, Marc Fagelman, at mfagelman@comcast.net.
