Tri-National Sonoran Desert Symposium

Tri-National Sonoran Desert Symposium

The March 2014 Tri-National Symposium will address successes and continuing challenges of conserving the magnificent Sonoran Desert. The symposium will focus on cultural and natural resource issues, Native American tribal perspectives, environmental concerns, and border issues.

A variety of special field trips are being planned for Tuesday March 18th. On Wednesday through Friday, we are scheduling plenary sessions, a rich choice of breakout sessions, and ample networking time. Thursday evening will feature a sunset dinner on Childs Mountain in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge (transportation provided). Friday evening will be an opportunity to sample Tohono O’odham cultural foods. Saturday is Ajo’s annual Sonoran Shindig festival in the historic Ajo Plaza.

Registration fees are $50 per day for sessions. Field trips are free. Most meals are included.
