Tiffany Caudle addresses 10th Grade GeoFORCE students on Austin's Mt. Bonnell In July, BEG Research Scientist Associate Tiffany Caudle led a group of high school students from Southwest Texas on the GeoFORCE Young Geoscientist field course in Austin and Port Aransas. On the field trip, students visited locations in Austin including Mt. Bonnell, McKinney Falls State Park, Roy G. Guerrero Colorado River Park, and Barton Springs Pool. During the Port Aransas portion of the trip, students studied many environments on a barrier island (Mustang Island), including the beach, dunes, bay margin, wetlands, and washover features. The students also explored the coastal marine environment aboard the Marine Science Institute’s Research Vessel Katy, a 57-foot trawler, by sampling marine life through a plankton tow, a benthic mud grab, and trawl. Said Caudle, who began working with GeoFORCE in 2006, “For me, the coolest part of the GeoFORCE program - aside from teaching geology to an awesome group of students—is watching  the friendships grow between the students.“
