Thanks to the cooperation of Basic Materials Company and their resident geologist, Sherman Lundy, for allowing us to explore the geological wonders of the Morgan quarry. Participants can expect to see exposures of Pre-Illinoisan glacial sediments overlying Middle Devonian age bedrock of the Wapsipinicon Group. Field trip leaders will highlight aspects of the Iowan Surface landform region, marine deposition in the Devonian Iowa Basin, and implications of groundwater and surface water quality.”
