We sometimes think we know about what is in our own back yard, so to speak. This was a chance to visit another part of Massachusetts and learn about the area. All the hard work of organizing has been done. Just go, enjoy, learn, and expand my world--I couldn't ask for anything more.

This was my first experience with Rhode Scholar and am very happy with my Geological trip to Deerfield,MA. Very informative and definitely not boring. Like the fact that everything is taken care of, well organized,(thanks Julie!) the people are nice and the interpreters were all great. The hands on and seeing the different types of rocks from the wide variety of time periods from this area was amazing. I now look at the landscape and geology everywhere I go with a "new" perspective. I look forward to more Rhode Scholar trips. Thanks for giving me a great experience here. : D
