The field trip will run from 8:00am to around 3pm. We will meet at the Gammage Theater parking lot near the Memorial Union on Tempe campus at 8:00am to get on a charter bus to visit 3 areas of interest. These areas are within the Phoenix metropolitan area, so long bus rides are not expected. Please remember to wear appropriate footwear and clothing. We will not be doing anything strenuous, but will be walking on dirt roads for short periods of time under the sun. There will be water and snacks available, but please bring anything else you require to make this trip comfortable and enjoyable. Lunch will be provided and will eat in the field during our field trip. Vegan and Vegetarian options will be available. Once we get closer to the time, we will reach out for lunch orders.

Dinner and drinks will be provided, with additional drinks and items available for purchase from the bar menu. We will have some brief closing statements and plan to spend the evening celebrating and socializing together. It should be a blast, and we look forward to seeing you!
