The weather for This Sunday looks good! So we are on as planned for the Geology Merit Badge Field Trip this Sunday 1:00 to 2:00 at Big Brook.

We will be meeting there, if you need a ride let me know!

for the trip you will need: 
  • you homework from the last class
  • shoes that can get wet and muddy (not your new school sneakers) There is glass in the stream so you will not be barefoot.
  • Crappy clothes…you may fall in the mud…I would bring a towel
  • kitchen colander
  • trowel with a  blade no more that 6" long….(even kids plastic beach shovels work great) you are not allowed to DIG in the stream …just scoop
  • do not bring anything that can't get wet…leave your cell phone at home or put in a ziplock bag
  • Please let me know if you have any questions 732-682-6143 (text me) or call after 6pm
From 79 north, go past Freehold, and turn right onto Vandenberg road (which will turn into Crine road past the Boundary road intersection) in Marlboro. Drive past Boundary road. About 2 miles down this road, a little past Boundary road, turn left onto Hillsdale road. Look for a bridge over Big Brook about a half mile down this road. Just past the bridge over Big Brook you can park on the right side. Then simply head into the brook! There is a regulations sign near the guard rail of the bridge.
