LAGS Lectures, Hike and Photo Contest

Hi everyone!

Sorry it's been so long since our latest update.  It's been a crazy semester. 

The LAGS had their first two lectures of the year on Feb. 7 on "Fog and Climate Change: Now You See It, Now You Don’t!" by Dr. Steve LaDochy, Professor of Geosciences, CSU Los Angeles and March 7 on "Jakarta: Inside an Asian Mega-City" by Dr. Helga Leitner, Professor of Geography, UCLA. 

The next lecture will be April 4 on "Going Bananas Over Bananas: Ecology and World Trade" by Dr. John Kirchner, Professor of Geography Emeritus, CSU Los Angeles. 

The LAGS will be hosting a special event on May 2, the California Geographical Society Annual Conference.  Students who present papers and maps can possibly get the fee refunded to them through the Geography Department.  Visit the department office for more info or call them: 562-985-8432 or 4977.

The LAGS also has scholarships available and the deadline is April 4.  For more info visit their website

The GSA is planning a hike during Spring Break to Angels Gate Park in San Pedro.  The address is 3601 Gaffey St., San Pedro, CA 90731.  The website also includes driving directions.  Angels Gate Park has Fort MacArthur and the Korean Friendship Bell.

We're still working out some details, but it'll most likely be a morning hike with a cultural lunch (instead of cultural night dinner) afterward.  Please email us if you're interested in coming so we can get a basic headcount and let us know if anyone needs to carpool.

We will be having our annual photo contest during Earth Week from April 21-24.   We'll have fliers with more details about the contest out sometime next week, so be on the lookout for them!  There might also possibly be other events during that week  hosted by the Environmental Science and Policy Club.  More info to come later.
