In addition to the day trips listed on Field Trips 2016-2017, there are two longer trips scheduled. The weekend trip to Montauk (February 25–26, 2017) is a longtime favorite and has been featured in the field trip program for many years. Please note the early registration date for this trip, which allows the registrar to make necessary lodging reservations and other plans.

One of our esteemed leaders, Rick Wright, has been leading a longer trip to the West for the past few years (previous destinations include Arizona and New Mexico). On September 13–20, 2017, he will lead a field trip featuring Nebraska and South Dakota.
