Fieldwork on Thursday
Geography 47 will meet at Columbia Cemetery on Thursday, September
26th at 4:45pm about halfway into the cemetery.
The Cemetery is located on West Broadway about 200 yards west of
Providence Rd. (Right behind Osco Drug--if you like to climb fences!)
Otherwise drive or walk down Broadway, past Osco/Office Depot, past
the closed Sutton's Barbeque restaurant, to the entrance. See map
If you are driving, pull into the cemetery
and park your car along one of the "side streets" making
sure you are not blocking the roadway. The cemetery caretaker gets
a bit cranky if the roadways are inaccessible.
WHAT TO BRING:
Bring a calculator, pencil and a clip board or notepad to write
on. Last year the weather "looked warm" to several students
and they showed up in T-shirts, shorts and flip-flops. The temperature
that day went from 70 degrees at noon to 45 degrees at 2:30pm. Needless
to say, they were V-E-R-Y uncomfortable. The cemetery is located
on a hill and typically is much cooler than campus may seem. A sweatshirt
or jacket probably will be advisable.
If a funeral is being held that day,
we will need to be sure that we keep our cars and our activities
away from the service. Please be respectful of anyone visiting the
cemetery or any service being held there.
RAIN PLANS: . If
it is raining, or you are unsure what to do, check this website
or call my office (882-3233) after 2 pm on Thursday for the final
word on plans for the class. If the fieldwork is cancelled due to
the weather, we will meet at A&S at our regular time and place.
