AWG Field Trips

Upcoming Trips

Save the dates for AWG’s 2020 field trip to New Zealand! 

Join us for a 2-week field trip to New Zealand with Williams GeoAdventures in late winter of 2020!  We have a tentative itinerary with 6 full days on the North Island, featuring tours of volcanic areas, and 8 full days on the South Island, including tours of the New Zealand Alps and Milford Sound.  We will have a geologic guide and our own bus and driver on each island, and the price will include air travel both ways between the North and South Islands.  In an attempt to keep the price as reasonable as possible, lodgings will be split between 3-star hotels and Top 10 Holiday Parks (nice hostel/budget motel-like lodgings).  Our slightly tentative dates (could still shift by a day or two) are February 26 through March 12, 2020, and the very tentative price is $5000(generally double or triple occupancy).  Space will be limited and I expect this trip to fill, so if you’re interested in going, please be ready to sign up when registration opens in the spring.  For more information or to be put on the interest list for more timely updates, please email AWG Field Trip Committee Co-chair Marcia Knadle at marciaAWG@aol.com.  Stay tuned for further information regarding the price.  For more information about Williams GeoAdventures, visit their website at http://www.geology-adventures.com/.
