We are launching our year-end campaign with more excitement than usual on Giving Tuesday. Please join us on 1 December at 12:00 p.m. MDT for a Virtual Chat Honoring J. David Lowell: Field Camp in Changing Landscapes. Jeff Oslund, GSAF Board of Trustees Co-Chair, will lead a conversation with GSA Past President George Davis on GSA’s commitment to supporting field work. Dr. Miriam Barquero Molinai, Director of University of Missouri’s Geology Field Program, will talk about the importance of in-person field work, historically and into the post-pandemic world ahead. We will also hear first-hand experience from a fully virtual Indiana University field camp attendee, Michael Hanna-Wilson.
One week later, at 12:00 p.m. MDT on 8 December, Jeff will lead a second virtual conversation about changes and challenges with in-person and virtual field camps in a quickly shifting environment.
Both sessions will offer you the chance to ask questions and be part of the conversation about field camps.
Virtual Chats: Our Current Way to Visit with You
We started hosting virtual chats this summer with four discussions about GSA programs supported by donors like you. The first was led by GSAF board member Mike Manship, who discussed why it’s important to give to GSA’s Greatest Needs fund. The second was led by GSAF board member Darrel Cowan on research grants. GSA’s Executive Director Vicki McConnell led our third chat on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our fourth summer chat was led by GSAF board member Jinny Sisson on field camp.
We will continue to offer exciting opportunities for virtual engagement, so please bookmark this page and return often for more updates and keep an eye on your email.
