Event description
The Tri-national Sonoran Symposium was established to increase understanding of the natural and cultural resources of the Sonoran Desert.

About this Event

Organized by representatives from the Tohono O'odham Nation, Mexico and the United States, the symposium will offer presentations and dialogue about the dynamics of natural and cultural ecology, environmental challenges, and their relationships to peoples - past and present - living in the Sonoran Desert.

Join us March 9-12, 2020 as we celebrate successes and address continuing challenges facing the incomparable Sonoran Desert. Sessions and poster presentations will focus on Cultural and Natural Resources, Native American Tribal Perspectives and Modern Human Interactions with the Landscape. The Symposium includes free field trips on Monday March 9th followed by a full schedule of plenary & breakout sessions, poster presentations and abundant networking time at receptions and meals.

To Register, click the Green TICKETS button at the top right and select the"Full Conference" ticket. This registration will give you access to all symposium sessions and meals aside from the Wednesday evening dinner. If you are unable to attend the entire symposium, there are also single day ticket options for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday--select all that apply.

On Wednesday March 11, there will be a separately ticketed event on Childs Mountain where participants will be treated to a wonderful meal with natural and cultural resource experts surrounded by a panoramic view of the heart of the Sonoran Desert. If you would like to attend this dinner, you are invited to purchase that ticket here as well.
