Course Description:

While making several stops along a bus tour in the Harvard, MA vicinity, this course will expose participants to the unique glacial stratigraphy of northward-draining watersheds. The Nashua, Assabet, and Sudbury watersheds all drain north, resulting in unusual glacial landforms and stratigraphy. We will visit a variety of glacial landforms, make interpretations about soils and stratigraphy, and test those interpretations with exceptional outcrop sites and ground truthing. Throughout the day, participants will be presented with unique challenges to get discussion going and make sure that it is a memorable trip. Lunch provided. 

Moderate hiking involved. Course will be held rain or shine.
