Field Trips

The Tallahassee Scientific Society is continuing its series of field trips, which usually are Saturday morning, family friendly, expert-led outings. They are announced first to TSS members by email and later to the general public if spaces remain. Past trips have focused on karst geology, astronomy, archaeology, dinosaur paleontology, quarry fossil-hunting, and visits to Tall Timbers Research Station and the Hopkins Power Plant. New trips are offered to members by email and advanced reservations are required. Group size is managed for a maximum educational experience, and there are no charges for the trips.
