Field Trip Costs - Field trip is restricted to AGS members;  $35.00 for professional AGS members, and $10.00 for student members.  These fees will cover the cost of transportation, lunch and refreshments. South 32 will provide the field trip guidebook.  Information on lunch choices to follow; drinks and snacks will be provided.

Carpooling - Due to limited space, AGS has decided to employ several vans to transport field trip participants from Tucson to the South 32 Hermosa project site.
