Field Trip Guidebooks

Welcome to the NYSGA Guidebook Archive. Please feel free to download any files available on this site. Note that field guides for the years 2015-2017 are not available for download but can be purchased from the Executive Secretary (Sales)

Guidebooks are arranged by decade back to 1925 when the NYSGA held its first meeting. Inspect the images of guidebook covers to see changes in format and evolving technology over time. Guidebooks are listed by year, hosting organization, meeting location, and occasionally historical notes. Alternatively you can download guides from the Full List of all guidebooks without covers or notes.

For those interested in geo-referenced locations of all stops described in the Guidebooks please check out field trip routes and Stop locations painstakingly compiled by Dr. Otto Muller and team (Maps)
