The 106th Annual Meeting of the New England Geologic Field Conference will be hosted by Wellesley College over Columbus Day weekend in 2014.  The field trip program is shaping up to include excursions not only in the vicinity of Boston, Massachusetts, but also in nearby Rhode Island and southern New Hampshire.  Leaders are already committed for bedrock outings in Avalonian units in and around the Boston Basin, as well as the Nashoba terrane and Merrimack belt to the west.  Trips to Paleozoic igneous rocks of Cape Ann and sedimentary and metamorphic assemblages in the Narragansett Basin are also in the works.  Surficial trips will highlight glacial, fluvial and coastal geology, and related environmental issues.  A specific list of excursions and leaders will be posted later in the spring as more trips materialize
