HSU Hosts Hundreds for California Geographical Society Meeting Geography

More than 300 people from across California and the broader Pacific West were at Humboldt State for the 69th Annual California Geographical Society Meeting, May 1-3.
The meeting, themed “Raising the Redwood Curtain,” was larger than prior years at other locations. And those who made the journey to Humboldt were not disappointed. Geography faculty and students organized the conference with 13 field trips over three days that showcased the physical beauty and cultural uniqueness of the area.

Students made more than 100 oral, poster, and cartographic map presentations, and Humboldt State Geography majors took away three prestigious awards for their original research. Kristopher Anderson won first place in the Tom McKnight Paper Award competition for his research paper titled “Preserving Identity, Tourism in Tibet.” Cristina Bauss won first place in the Joe Beaton Poster Award competition for her research poster titled “Mapping Marijuana Cultivation and Water Storage in the Redwood Creek Watershed.” And Ashlee Fleming placed second in the Mapping Award competition for her digital map research project titled “Server Locations of the World’s Most Visited Websites.”
