Student, spouses, and interested guests are cordially encouraged to attend these field trips. Trips are technical in nature, and some can be physically rigorous. Participants should be prepared for cold, wet weather. Trips are one to five days in duration and 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 $40 nonregistrant fee 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.

All trips begin and end in Denver at the Colorado Convention Center, unless otherwise indicated. Upon return, some postmeeting trips can stop at the Denver 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, (303) 357-1034.

Cancellation Deadline: October 7, 2004
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 to you 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.
