Bear Lake Adventure!

Come early and join us on an adventure to Bear Lake.  Saturday, September 28th

Plan to arrive in time for breakfast at 8 am, which will include our first conference session and then a 9:30-10 am departure from Utah State University on Saturday morning.

The Bear Lake Valley is a recreational paradise! Bear Lake is often called “Caribbean of the Rockies” for its intense turquoise blue water. Jet ski, go sailing, boating, fish, swim and play on sandy beaches.  Enjoy bird watching & wildlife.

If you've never been to Bear Lake, you owe it to yourself to go, because it's not just another mountain lake.

Our adventure will include a bus ride to the lake, lunch, followed by an ice cream treat.  We have some informative and educational conference sessions planned for the day.  We'll return to Utah State University no later than 4 pm.  In plenty of time for our Opening Reception and possibly a Utah State vs. Colorado State University football game.

No additional cost to participate - just note that you'll be participating on your registration form.
