Deal of the Week

March 18, 2001

Yearning for an outdoor adventure in an exotic locale that won't give your pocketbook too much of a workout? The University of California Research Expeditions Program may be your answer. Its small-group trips, led by UC professors and graduate students, cost about $95 to $125 per day, including food, lodging and equipment (transportation to the site is extra). You could find yourself counting grasshoppers in Kenya, excavating Neanderthal archeological sites in Spain or interviewing Malawi villagers about the history of the slave trade. Nearly 20 trips are offered this year. Telephone (530) 757-3529 or (530) 752-0692, Internet http://urep.ucdavis.edu.
