2015 TAS Field School

The 2015 TAS Field School will once again be held in Columbus, June 13-20.  Not much information is ready to put online at this time, but PI Jason Barrett has given a synopsis of what is planned.  A more thorough explanation of summer Field School activities will be in the Spring newsletter and online.  For now, only Jason’s invitation and the mail-in registration are available.

A request to those who do plan to send mail-in registrations: the information on Field School t-shirts was omitted from the form printed in the Winter newsletter. Please print and use the PDF mail-in form that is on the website.

We are pushing to provide a correct mail-in form, so be aware that the online registration will not be ready for a bit.

Time to start planning your June trip to Columbus!
