2024 West Coast Retreat

Join us in Tomales Bay near Point Reyes National Seashore for a weekend of networking and collaboration!

May 10, 2024 - May 12, 2024
Inverness, CA


Hertz Fellows will gather at the Tomales Bay Resort & Marina in Inverness, California, for the annual west coast retreat to network, collaborate, and share stories. We're delighted to welcome in-school fellows and those three years out from their PhD to join this event. Retreats are a key opportunity to build community and share ideas with other in-school and early career fellows in a relaxed and engaging environment.

Featured Activities: participate in an engineering challenge and a retrosynthesis activity, share your research/science through whiteboard talks, join an optional Bioluminescent Kayaking Tour on Tomales Bay, hike and explore Limantour beach, and more!


Registration for this event is now closed.
