We recommend that participants bring a laptop or tablet.

Logan, Utah is readily accessible via Salt Lake City. The Salt Lake City airport is accessed by all major airlines. Logan is a scenic 1.5 hour drive north. Shuttle service is available at a cost of $60 round trip.
Lodging is available on campus at the Utah State University Inn (discounted rates available here), just a one block walk from the training location. We also recommend staying at the Crystal Inn (use group code "WA0513") in Logan or Weston Inn - both will provide transportation to/from the training site and have many other amenities. The Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, or Marriott SpringHill Suites are all a short, 5 minute drive away. Transportation between Logan hotels and the training site will be provided upon request.
Our training site is close to many recreational and scenic areas, including Logan Canyon Scenic Highway (10 minutes), Bear Lake (1 hour), Park City (2 hours), Yellowstone National Park (4 hours), Jackson Hole (4 hours), and Zion National Park (5 hours). There are plenty of opportunities if you would like to extend your trip and see more of Utah and beyond.
For those that are interested, we will be having a pre-conference tour (weather permitting) of Logan Canyon and Tony Grove Lake. We will provide transportation for the tour and return for an informal dinner in Logan that evening. Join us for the trip or dinner or both!
