We will meet at the NDSU Dickinson Research Extension Center at 11:00 am (Mountain Time) on Friday, August 31, 2018 (see DREC-directions.png). This will mean departing Fargo at 7:00 a.m. or earlier. We will be staying at the NDSU Dickinson Research Extension Center and we will have access to showers and lab space in the evenings. The name of the director of the station is Dr. Kris Ringwall. We will return to Fargo late in the evening on Friday, Sept. 7. You will have 6.5 days to complete the mapping of an 8 square mile area of rugged, badlands terrain. You need to be fit and to be well-equipped for long days in the field. We will depart for the field each morning by 7:30 a.m. after breakfast and will return at 6:30 p.m. in the evening. You will need to be prepared for any type of weather. Previous groups have experienced all types of weather from 100 degree days to freezing temperatures and snow. You will be able to cook your own meals if you so wish or you will be able to eat in Dickinson. After dinner, we will work on notes and maps, and start drafting the report.
