A Great (and Inexpensive) Opportunity to tour some of California's Most Incredible Geology: Far Western Section NAGT Fall Conference, Oct. 8-10

The Far Western Section of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers would like to extend an invitation to all geologists, teachers, and students who are interested in the geology of California. We are having our Fall Conference at CSU Fresno on October 8-10, and will be offering a wide ranging roster of field trips to Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park, Yosemite National Park, the Sierra Nevada foothills, Carrizo Plains National Monument, the Diablo Range of the Coast Ranges, and a look at the brand new Madera Fossil Discovery Center and the excavations of Ice Age faunas at the Fairmead Landfill. We will also have a vast array of California and Nevada geology field guides and other resources available for sale. You do not need to be a member of the NAGT to participate.

Special discounts are offered to students, and costs are low for this kind of opportunity. Information and registration forms can be accessed on the Far Western Section website. For questions and more information, please contact conference coordinator Paul Troop.

Bad timing! I am actually on vacation that weekend but I just booked my very first trip to Hawaii that weekend! Probably no sightseeing at all, just downtime on the beach but I am soooo looking forward to it.

Have a great time. I miss going on these field trips with you and NAGT.
