If your workshop includes a field trip, you will want waders and wading boots. Please ensure that your waders and boots have been properly disinfected, cleaned and dried. If you don’t have your own waders let us know so we can bring some for you. We recommended that you bring:
- Chest waders and wading boots (thoroughly dried and disinfected w/ bleach or 409 solution)
- A dry change of clothes (just in case) never hurts
- Thermal layers for inclement weather
- Outer shell rain jacket for potential rain/snow
- A hat
- Sunglasses (polarized help for seeing in the water)
- A water bottle
- A camera (optional)
- A notepad and pencil (optional)
Weather can change quickly in the mountains. Dress accordingly and be prepared for rain or light snow if we happen to be that unlucky.

The nearest airport is Salt Lake International (SLC), about 90 minutes from the University. To get to Logan, you can either rent a car or take an airport shuttle. Salt Lake Express operates airport shuttles that travel to Logan, and can drop you off or pick you up on campus at the University Inn. You can also rent a car at the Salt Lake International Airport.
There are several lodging options in Logan, including motels from low to mid price range (there are not any high end hotels in Logan). For convenience to the course, we recommend the University Inn (http://uicc.usu.edu/), as it is part of Utah State University’s campus and the workshop will take place in the same building. We have reserved a block of rooms for the workshop at the University Inn for a reduced rate. When you make your booking mention ‘GCD Workshop’ (Contact 800-231-5634).
Other options include home/cabin rentals on VRBO and Homeway.
