Where To Go When You Get To The USGS Campus
There is a welcome station at the end of Homewood Place. Please check in to pick up important materials and your starting station.
DO NOT drive down Survey Lane (W 2nd on the Google Map) to drop students off. We need to keep that area safe and clear of traffic.
There is only one lot reserved for parking and it is off of Linfield Drive before Homewood, if you are coming from Middlefield. There should be parking throughout the neighborhood and also at Burgess Park.
