We will update this page as more information becomes available – check back frequently!


Optional field trips will be available on Sunday, September 10th. We will contact registered field trip participants separately regarding specific group sign-up – stay tuned!


General information:

  • Field trips will be from 8:00 AM-12:00 PM
  • Just like the course, car-pooling to the field locations will be arranged
  • Car-poolers should make sure their groups arrive at the location by 8:00am. The field trip will end back at the cars by noon, then car-poolers will drive their group back to UC Berkeley
