Fly in and out of Las Vegas

See itinerary below

Led by Dr. Bob Nusbaum, this 7-day trip will revisit some of your favorite Field Studies stops including Zion, Bryce Canyon, Yankee Meadows, and Cathedral Gorge. Be prepared for hiking, camping, and geological challenges along the way! Relive the sights, sounds, and smells (vans?) of southern Utah.

We set a reasonable program fee to encourage participants to donate an additional amount to our new Geology Alumni Endowed Fund. By contributing, you'll be supporting students to attend Field Studies and conduct research with faculty this year and years to come.

Cost (park entrance and camping fees, van rentals, and meals): $799*
Limited to 17 participants (first-come, first-served)
Payment due by March 30, 2018
