The Rocky Mountain and Cordilleran Sections of GSA are combining forces for a joint meeting in Bozeman. Bozeman is a beautiful university town located in the Gallatin Valley of southwest Montana (Montana’s fly fishing epicenter), just north of Yellowstone National Park. The beautiful setting, coupled with an engaging scientific program, promises to make this an excellent meeting. The Museum of the Rockies, adjacent to the Montana State University (MSU) campus, is home to one of the largest and most important dinosaur collections in the world and offers other great exhibits for the family as well. The joint meeting will be hosted by MSU and held on the MSU campus.
Weather in southwest Montana can be highly variable during May, ranging from warm and sunny to heavy snow on the valley floor. We highly recommend that participants look at National Weather Service forecasts and then plan accordingly. Regardless of the forecast, however, a coat or fleece is always recommended for cool mornings and evenings in Bozeman. For those participating in pre- and post-meeting field trips, it is highly recommended that you be prepared for mixed weather conditions.
