We invite all teachers, professors, students, and friends of the earth and geological sciences to attend the 2015 Fall Conference of the Far West Section of the NAGT on October 16 – 18, 2015 based in Bakersfield, California. Check the conference website www.csub.edu/~dbaron/NAGT2015.htm after Labor Day for latest updates and complete details.
Southern San Joaquin Valley of California
Join us to explore a region that offers interesting geology, a World-class fossil location, and provides employment to many geoscientists. The Field Conference will be based at the California State University, Bakersfield and the Buena Vista Museum of Natural History in downtown Bakersfield. The best place to camp in the area is the Kern River Campground near Lake Ming east of Bakersfield. Sites cannot be reserved but should be available on Fridays in October. Alternatives a little farther afield are several campgrounds along the Kern River in the Kern Canyon. Bakersfield has many hotels in all price ranges. Homewood Suites are located within walking distance of the campus; the historic and recently renovated Padre Hotel is a good (but somewhat expensive) choice with great ambiance downtown within walking distance of the Buena Vista Museum of Natural History.
We hope to see you in Bakersfield!
