Important notes regarding field trips:
- Before purchasing non-refundable airline tickets, confirm that the trip will take place as trips may be cancelled if undersubscribed.
- Field trips are limited in size and are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis and must be accompanied by full payment.
- If you do not plan to attend the conference, a US $30 enrollment fee will be added to the field trip fee. This fee may be applied toward registration if you decide to attend the conference at a later date.
- A wait list is automatically created if a field trip sells out. The AAPG Convention Department will notify you if space becomes available.
- Please register before 31August 2017. Field trip cancellation due to low enrollment will be considered at this time. No refunds will be allowed on field trips after 14 September 2017.
- We will continue to take registrations for field trips not cancelled until they are either sold out or closed.
- It is important that you note your gender when registering for hotel room assignments.
- Prior to the field trip, you will receive an itinerary with details of meeting points, transportation with the trip phone numbers, and email addresses of hotels and trip leaders, etc.
- Proper clothing and supplies are needed and may be required for the outdoors (hat, windbreaker, sturdy footwear, and backpack). Please ensure that you are adequately prepared for the field trip you have signed up for in advance.
- Depending on location, temperatures can range from 40 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit with or without rain. Participants are advised to check local weather forecasts for latest updates.
- Insect repellant and sun protection (sunscreen and hats) are recommended.
- AAPG, the sponsoring organizations, nor field trip leaders and their employers maintain insurance covering illness or injury for individuals.
There are a limited number of discounted registrations available for students on a first-come, first-served basis. If a discounted space is still available,
it will show up during the online registration process. If discounted spots are no longer available, you may register at the full fee. If we are able to add
additional discounted spots we will refund the difference at that time.
