I don’t have the funds to pay for the conference. Can I still attend?

What COVID-19 safety precautions will be followed during the in person field trips?
Masks will not be required due to field trips being an outdoor activity, but participants will be expected to maintain six feet of social distance. Participants may wear a mask to suit their comfort level or if 6 feet of distance cannot be maintained.
