Renew friendships. Present research. Celebrate Geography.

Take the Ventura Highway north out of Los Angeles, or south from Santa Barbara... or take the train, but get here for the 85th annual conference of the Association of Pacific Coast Geographers.

This year's conference heralds (we hope) a full return to normal conferencing - where we can make new friends, share meaningful research and creative activities, and enjoy the deep learning that comes with travel and field excursions.

We have a great lineup of speakers and field trips planned. All we need is a good turn out.  We especially hope to entice many young geographers to show up and enjoy the experience of a professional geography conference.
