A mid-meeting field trip will highlight the karst of the Greenbrier Valley, developed in its namesake Greenbrier Limestone (Mississippian). Participants will learn about the overall karst geology of the area and recent advances in science and exploration. Stops will include stratigraphy, surface karst features, and local show caves.

An optional, post-meeting field trip will be available and focus on speleogenetic processes in an easily accessible, local wild cave.
