We will have speakers, field trips , activities such as birding, photography, and hiking –
plus conversations about important issues facing the River and surrounding public lands.
A Note to Amargosa Area Locals: Please fill out a scholarship application form and we will be glad to work with you so that you are able to attend the event.
The event will begin Friday evening with a Meet-and-Greet session where you will be able to learn about many of our projects around the Basin, visit with our partners in the area, and get to know the other attendees.
Saturday morning after breakfast we will hear from a speaker about the history of the WSR act and the Amargosa River. Then you will have a chance to choose from several field trip options. You will need your own transportation, though we can arrange some carpools. Each field site will have a presentation and then a chance to explore the area a bit. You can eat your picnic lunch, then journey to one of the other field sites of your choice for an early afternoon session. We will all meet back in Tecopa to have some round-table discussions about hot topics. Finally we will wrap up the day with a great BBQ dinner (veggie options available), finish up the Silent Auction, and have a nice evening together.
The Sunday activities will be less formal, and you will be able to choose from several options. Or, you can go wander on your own and we will be glad to give you some ideas!
