Some information[edit]

Pasted-in text from an article on Asilomar State Beach section on this conference grounds (There were no sources given for this material but may be useful. I suggest editors do not paste into article, but try to cover the topics here using new sources. We cannot cite another wikipedia article as a source.):

Merrill Hall, Asilomar.

"The Asilomar Conference Grounds began in 1913 as a camp and conference site for the YWCA. Its historic buildings were designed by the California architect Julia Morgan, and have been designated a National Historic Landmark. It has been owned and operated by the State of California since 1956. The grounds are available to park visitors for conferences and/or overnight stay. The California State Parks training facility-- William Penn Mott, Jr. Training Center--is located on the conference grounds."

Asilomar shore.

"The Asilomar Conference Grounds is managed by a hospitality concessionaire that oversees a complex of meeting and conference rooms ranging from the 650 seat Merrill Hall to intimate meeting accommodations for smaller groups. Conference guests may reserve far ahead of time, but leisure, or non-conference guests, may only register a few months ahead and rooms are on a first come first serve basis, with cancellations sometime a necessity. Designed to be free from everyday interruptions; there are no telephones or televisions in the 314 guest rooms. Among the noted conferences held there was a conference in 1975 at which scientists agreed on the basic policies that would govern genetic engineering research (see: Asilomar conference on recombinant DNA)."

"The William Penn Mott, Jr. Training Center offers a variety of training programs to both California State Parks employees and those from other agencies." —Preceding unsigned comment added by Doncram (talkcontribs) 22:03, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
