Upcoming Trips

AWG will be heading to Iceland!

July 6-18, 2021

In cooperation with Iceland Geology Tours, AWG will host a 13-day trip to Iceland that will encompass the entire island. The total price is $5800 (double occupancy, does not include airfare).  Please see the Iceland Geology Tours website for the tentative daily agenda, included excursions, and more. The trip is limited to 13 participants. To hold your slot, please make a deposit by March 7, 2021. Please contact the field trip coordinator, Marcia Knadle at fieldtrips@awg.org for more information. 

Registration is open for the AWG Northern California San Andreas Fault Geology Field Trip. 

September 16-23, 2021

In cooperation with Williams GeoAdventures, AWG will hold a second field trip in 2021 as a follow-up to our 2017 Central California Tectonics Field Trip. We will meet at Union Square in San Francisco on September 16 at 1:00 PM and end with a drop off at the San Francisco International Airport around 2:00 PM on September 23. We will stay four nights at either the Marin Headlands Hostel Annex or the Point Reyes Hostel and three nights at the Mendocino College Coastal Field Station in Point Arena, and will generally be two or three to a room. There will be numerous field stops and short hikes in the San Francisco Bay Area, Point Reyes, and the Sonoma and Mendocino Coast. Transportation is by coach and driver.

The total price is $1900, which does not include transportation to and from San Francisco or most food. Aside from an included group welcome dinner the first night, we will collect funds (in cash) for groceries at the start of the trip and prepare breakfasts, pack a sack lunch, and prepare dinners at our hostel-style lodgings each day. There will be significant discounts available for two food coordinators, with preference given to student participants. This is a members-only trip, so make sure your AWG membership is up to date to register. Also, you must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate. You will need to register with AWG first and then with Williams GeoAdventures. This trip has a maximum of 20 participants, so don’t delay. If you have questions, please contact Marcia Knadle at fieldtrips@awg.org.
