This region is one of the most scenic and secluded in New England. Exposed within and around Baxter State Park is a vast array of low-grade metasedimentary and volcanic rocks ranging in age from Precambrian to Middle Devonian. These rocks may be key to interpreting those in the high grade belts along strike to the southwest. Pillow lavas, mélange, pyroclastic flows with columnar jointing, turbidities, basin-deepening stratigraphic sequences, shear zones, plutons with hornfels rims are just a few features this conference hopes to cover. In addition the area offers an opportunity to view unique glacial and Holocene features.
