Cave in Carlsbad Caverns
Support students who research caves and karst! The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Karst Interest Group is holding a workshop May 16-18, 2017. Registration fees will benefit three student groups at the University of Texas, San Antonio: the Student Geological Society, and the student chapters of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists and the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists. See the announcement below from the National Cave and Karst Research Institute (NCKRI) monthly e-newsletter:


Hosted by the Student Geological Society and student chapters of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists and the Association of Engineering Geologists. 
This is a fundraiser for all three student chapters hosting the workshop and we suggest a donation of $25 for non-students and $15 for students. 
This is a charitable donation and for USGS or other Federal employees must be from personal funds, but is tax deductible. The student chapters will purchase light refreshments for the technical sessions so we are hoping that the donations will offset those costs.  Feel free to donate more than the recommended amounts as the student organizations will find good use for the funds.  Additionally, people that make a donation will receive a hard copy of the proceedings.
Go to the Student Geological Society, UTSA KIG website: 
NOTE- Two-step process to sign-up as the Donations button is separate from the Sign-Up for KIG button.  Please do both.
1- Donations button will take you to a donation page that you can choose the amount you would like to donate and the designation is automatically set to UTSA Geological Society with one-time gift selected.
2-Please Sign-Up for KIG for the workshop and indicate if you plan to participate on the Thursday field trip and are willing to drive (note need SUV or truck or car high off the ground for a couple of stops).  We will use the sign up information for making hard copies of the proceedings, field trip guide and to help organize carpools for the field trip.
The current agenda is on the KIG website.
