Join Us for a Weekend to Experience the Amargosa River and Basin.
Meet the Amargosa 2019 is set to be our best event yet!
October 25-27th, Tecopa, CA
The Meet the Amargosa seminar and festival brings people together to experience and learn about the natural world and history in the Amargosa Region. It takes place over three days, with a happy hour gathering Friday night, then presentations and field experiences on Saturday, followed by a dinner celebration. Sunday wraps up the event with optional more adventurous field opportunities, self-guided tours, and a restoration activity.
Many of our presentations this year focus on the theme of geology. You’ll have a chance to learn about the long history of the land and take field trips to see an overview of some the special features of the area. AC board member Bill Neill will present the general geology of the region, Andy Zdon returns for an update about the hydrological study of the area, and we are tentatively arranging for a presentation on the seismology of the region!
We’ll also be celebrating 25 years of the California Desert Protection Act, and 10 years of the Amargosa Wild and Scenic River.
