The Geology Trust is a traditional fund that has been active for decades. It is one of the main funds that allows us to purchase field vehicles (you all know the ones you have loved/hated in the past). Typically, we hold on to a field vehicle for at least 10-15 years before it is retired. We really cannot have the successful field program that is the tradition of Cal Poly Humboldt Geology without these 4WD vehicles that allow us access to geological sites and outcrops standard vehicles can’t reach.
This fund is also used to help maintain field camp essentials such as cook equipment, the solar power system, tents, and, of course, the on-demand shower.
