Please save the date for the Science on the Sonoita Plain Annual Symposium, held at the Appleton-Whittell Research Ranch of Audubon in Elgin, Arizona.

The Science on the Sonoita Plain Symposium is held annually to share results of scientific investigations and land management activities that are occurring within the upper watersheds of Cienega Creek, Sonoita Creek, and the Babocomari River. The SOSPsymposium encourages exchange among scientists, land managers, local landowners and citizens about the unique and diverse resources of the Sonoita Plain.

This year, our primary thematic focus will be on science applications, and will include a panel discussion of ranchers, land managers, and scientists.  We are also anticipating a wide range of presentations on current research and project activity.

Please note that space is limited for the Symposium, so we encourage you to register early to reserve a space. There is no cost for attendance, and you will not need a physical ticket for the event.

Registration is now open: register now.
