Back by popular demand!  Participants in the March 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016 tri-national symposia organized by representatives from the Tohono O'odham Nation, Mexico, and the United States recommended that this remarkable gathering should happen every two years.

The March 2018 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, and desert foodways with our recurring  theme: Celebrating the Sonoran Desert.

A variety of special field trips will be scheduled for Monday, March 5 and an opening reception Monday evening.  On Tuesday through mid-day Thursday, March 6-8, we are scheduling plenary sessions, a rich choice of breakout sessions, and ample networking time. 

Registration fees are $125 for the entire Symposium including meals. Monday field trips are FREE!

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN the first week of January 2018.  WATCH this website for information.
