Mid-Conference Field Trips

EcoSummit 2012 mid-conference field trips will be on Wednesday October 3, 2012, when scientific symposia and general sessions are adjourned for the day. Conference registrants can participate in one of 36 field trips that cover a variety of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, environmental technology sites, and cultural features of Ohio. Basic ground transportation and lunch costs for these field trips are included in the EcoSummit registration fee. Additional charges apply to some of the destinations (charges are outlined in the summaries). Field trips vary from several hours, to a full day and evening. All field trips will depart from and return to the conference venue— the Columbus Convention Center.

During registration, you will be given the opportunity to select your mid-conference field trip and field trips will be filled on a “first come, first served” basis. Don’t miss out— register soon!
