Pre Symposium Field Trip
New this year! The IKC is hosting a field trip in the afternoon, which is by registration only, and is limited to 20 participants. The trip, led by geologists Sarah Burgess and Sam Frushour, will caravan to Wesley Chapel Gulf and Orangeville Rise. They will highlight these unique karst features, including past dye tracing, and share results from some recent studies. For more detailed trip information and to register, you may go to and search “Indiana Karst Conservancy” . The field trip will return to the Orange County Community Building at 4:30 PM EDT. When you RSVP for the symposium and dinner, a registration link for the field trip will be sent at your request. If you plan to attend in-person or virtually, PLEASE RSVP here:


so we can plan accordingly for the purchased food (if you are eating), plan for the number of in-person attendees for seating, and send you the Zoom link if you plan to attend virtually.
