Join geologist John Bloch and ornithologist Arch McCallum for a fusion of their disciplines as we explore the incomparable Mesozoic and Cenozoic geology of southwestern Utah. We focus on flocks (birds) and rocks (geology) as an entry point to the entire ecosystem. In the process our two leaders (with PhDs in biology and geology) introduce us to geomorphology, geochemistry, biogeography, and ecology, all at comfortable level of detail. There is something for every naturalist on this expedition. Expect lots of good stories, laughter and great food, too!
