Thank You!

Drill Class

After cancelling in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Drill Seminar returned in-person on a cool, clear late February day in 2022, continuing a long tradition of providing over 100 college students and emerging professionals a free day of hands-on learning of geotechnical drilling and subsurface exploration. The Taber Ranch Vineyard and Event Center in Capay Valley, the H. Ray Taber Foundation, Taber Drilling, and the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists Sacramento Chapter welcomed engineering and geology students from CSU Sacramento, UC Berkeley, and UC Davis, as well as professionals from the public and private sectors. Drill Seminar would not be possible without the invaluable volunteers and volunteer organizations that donate their time and expertise. The generosity of our Drill Seminar corporate sponsors, many who donate year-after-year, directly funds engineering, geology, and agricultural scholarships within our local and regional communities. Thank you to all our volunteers, sponsors, and supporters for coming together once again to give back to the future of our industry and make Drill Seminar a success.
