in the field under penalty of expulsion from the course

is allowed in state vehicles or at any time while in the field.
Students must completey be sober at the start of the field day, and remain so all day!
- Under no
circumstances will any participant be allowed to enter any mine shaft,
adit, pit, or other workings--active or abandoned
- Do not
mark graffiti on rocks with hammer, marker, pencil, or other tool. The
creation of even a small amount of graffiti on public lands, however
remote, is considered vandalism. Students should understand that even
if there was graffiti to begin with (unfortunately, there are!), they
could be held accountable for adding to it. Do not think that a little
graffiti is harmless. New sightings of graffiti, starting in Summer
2006, will routinely be photographed and reported to Montana Department
of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC), and the Bureau of Land
Please do not vandalize rocks; study them! You are a geologist!

- For the
purpose of safety/control and management of the GSU's Summer Field Camp
in Dillon, Montana, all students are required to stay at the dorms of
the University of Montana, Western in Dillon. All students also need
to be in the meal plan within the dorm. These measures help to run the
field trips out of the dorms on scheduled times and in an orderly fashion,
and set up meetings during afternoons when needed. It also helps students
to interact and support each other. This policy means that students
should not plan staying out of the dorms when registerd in the Basic
and Advanced Field Geology courses. Students not wishing to comply with
this policy should not register for these courses.
skin exposure to the sun can lead to poor judgement, sun-stroke, heat
exhaustion, skin cancer, etc. Thus, each student is “strongly
recommended” to wear a hat, long trousers, long-sleeved shirt,
and field boots. Any student deemed not suitably dressed for field work
will not be allowed to participate in that day’s activities
- Try to
avoid being late. Missing a pick-up time or field appointment will cause
searches to be initiated immediately--a needless waste of time and money
if you are not lost or injured. If you are late you also risk ridicule
by the other students.
- Even though
conducted in rugged country, most field camp injuries have resulted
from frisbee tossing, ball games, swimming, and other leisure-time activities.
Please use common sense at all times.
