The Conference plans two field trips — one before the Conference and one after — for exploration of actual debris flows in Colorado. Participation in the field trips is optional, and a fee is charged that is in addition to the basic fee required to attend the Conference. Only Conference attendees and their guests can participate in the field trips.
The number of participants that can be accommodated on each trip is limited; therefore, those interested in participating in the field trips should register as soon as possible, but no later than April 13, 2019.
