Field Trip rosters will be in the registration room. After picking up your registration packet, please put a check mark by your name on each of your trip rosters, so the trip leaders will know you have checked in for your trip. There will be people available to answer any questions regarding trips. If you are not able to attend a trip, please cross out your name, so someone from the wait list can fill your place.
Departure Times The field trip departure times are for leaving the hotel. Please arrive minimum 10–15 minutes early. Look for the sign with your trip number and let the leader know you are there. We encourage carpooling. Please consider contributing toward gas expenses if you carpool. Trip leader cell phone numbers will be provided. If you cannot go on a trip, make every effort to advise one of the following: trip leader, meeting coordinator, or advise someone who is on the trip so the group doesn't wait for you.
All Day Trips Please bring a lunch, snacks, water. Many of the sites are remote with no nearby restaurants.
Hotel Returns Morning trips should be back to the hotel by noon, afternoon and all-day trips by 5:00 PM.
