IMPORTANT: As of July 21, 2014, Visitor Center Security will no longer be able to accept IDs from some US states for site access. Please see security procedures for details.

PSL holds seminars in two locations: The PSL South Conference Room (1D403) and the Multipurpose Room (GC402) at the David Skaggs Research Center. All seminar attendees, including pedestrians and bike riders, are required to receive a Visitor Badge from the Visitor Center at the Boulder Dept. of Commerce facilities. Seminar attendees will need to present a valid U.S. photo ID or their Permanent Resident Alien card. If you are a Foreign National without permanent residency please email the seminar coordinator* at least 48 hours prior to the seminar to provide information required for security purposes. You will need to present your passport when you check in at the Visitor Center. Please allow extra time to accommodate these procedures. If you have any questions or are interested in presenting a seminar, please contact one of the following coordinators*: Barbara Herrli (303-497-3876); Madeline Sturgill (303-497-5961) Madeline; or Shawn Dowd (303-497-6476) Shawn
