Field Trips

Students, spouses, and interested guests are encouraged to attend these field trips. Trips are technical in nature, and some can be physically rigorous. Participants should be prepared for a variety of weather conditions, from cold and wet to warm and sunny. Trips are one to four days in duration and are led by active field researchers. The minimum number of registrations for field trips is 12 unless otherwise stated.

If you register for only a field trip, you must pay a nonregistrant fee of US$40 in addition to the field trip fee. This fee may be applied toward meeting registration if you decide to attend the meeting. Trip fees include transportation during the trip and a guidebook. Other services, such as meals and lodging, are noted by the following symbols: B — breakfast, L — lunch, R — refreshments, D — dinner, ON — overnight lodging.

If you've already registered for the meeting and want to add a field trip please call GSA Sales and Service at +1-888-443-4472 or +1-303-357-1000 option 3.

All trips begin and end in Salt Lake City at the Salt Palace Convention Center, unless otherwise indicated. Upon return, some postmeeting trips can stop at the Salt Lake City International Airport to discharge participants who have evening flights or would prefer to spend the night in a hotel closer to the airport. Participants are cautioned against scheduling any tight travel connections with field trip return times, as those times are estimates and delays in the field can occur. For a list of hotels near the airport, contact Edna Collis, Program Officer, GSA Headquarters, +1-303-357-1034, ecollis [at]


No refunds will be given after this date. If GSA must cancel a field trip because of logistics or if minimum registration requirements are not met, a full refund will be issued after the meeting. Be aware of flight change penalties imposed by the airlines. Plan alternatives in advance should the trip you are registered for be cancelled. For more information, contact the trip leader.
