    Colorado Springs and surrounding areas were devastated by wildfire in 2012 and 2013 and floods in 2013 and 2015. Following the historic rainfall of 2015, landslides occurred in three locations within the city destroying homes and continuing to threaten others. Our field trip will visit the three major landslide locations to view both the geology and the impacts to the houses. The field trip will also visit mitigation efforts in three canyons where devastating floods resulted from the burn scar areas.
