Geoscience Field Trip Guidebooks

The Illinois State Geological Survey has conducted public geological field trips since circa 1929.  These field trips were originally designed for teachers, so that they could bring what they had learned about the geology of Illinois back to their classrooms.  The field trips still endeavor to serve teachers today, however everyone is welcome to attend.  In fact, many families have attended for generations.  For information on current field trips please see our Geological Science Field Trip page .

Each guidebook contains detailed geologic information for the region toured and what type of fossil, rock, or mineral specimens may be found.  The guidebooks often include information about the history, cultural aspects, and other natural resources of the area.  Please remember that these guidebooks were developed for field trips that occurred on specific dates with landowner permission.  These guidebooks do not grant access to these lands.  Proper entry access must be obtained before entering private property.
