Desert Symposium 2024

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

April 11 until April 15 at Zzyzx, California

Get your kicks: Trails across the Mojave

 

Join us for presentations on trails from prehistoric to the historic Route 66, railroads, and freeways. Plus our usual wide variety of topics about the desert we love.

The meeting will be held Friday and Saturday at Desert Studies Consortium, Zzyzx, CA. The field trip will take place on Sunday and Monday. The field trip will be based out of Zzyzx, so you have this option for meals and lodging during the trip.

Attachments include a registration form and documents about liability and codes of conduct. Please note that two of the documents must be signed in order to register.

Registration and signed documents should be returned to:

Desert Symposium Inc.
PO Box 2411
Running Springs CA 92382

Please note that registration deadline is March 12, 2024. Late registration may be possible with a $100 fee; space is limited and late registrants may not be accommodated. We will send more information on the facility, meeting programs, and any details on entry through the gate to registrants.

Also, note that you must either pay for lodging or for day-use. Day-use is a mere $5! Please note that if you want to sleep in your vehicle (no RVs), you must check the appropriate line on the form and pay for lodging. No exceptions.

As usual, students get a big discount on registration fees.

As usual, there is camping on Federal lands in the general vicinity, but not at Zzyzx. No motels are available in Baker. The closest motels are in Daggett or Primm, Nevada each about 60 miles away. Contact Dave Miller (dmiller@usgs.gov) with questions.
