The Idaho Geological Survey has conducted instructional field workshops for Idaho's elementary and secondary teachers since 1986.
The week-long summer workshops provide hands-on, inquiry-based instruction on geology at various field locations in the state.
Below is a list of past field workshops and associated materials (if available).
