Summer 2008 Field Week
July 20-26, 2008 at WMRS Crooked Creek Station

Draft Agenda:


Please note: past WMRS-GLORIA field weeks have been free of charge to participants. Owing to new budget cuts, WMRS is now requesting that participants pay at least $15/night in order to cover the cost of food for the field week. If this creates a hardship for students or volunteers, please see John, Daniel or Denise at WMRS. If your funding makes it possible, we also request that participants pay the full UC rate of $49/night. Please pay by check made out to UC Regents and give to Denise Waterbury.
