Conference Field Trips and Workshops

Every year the AWMS conference provides a number of pre- and post-conference field trips and workshops. Typically, seats are limited, so book early to not miss out. But if you are interested in a fully booked field trip/workshop, please put your name on the waitlist in case we receive a cancellation or can increase the number of seats depending on demand.
