Appleton-Whittell Research Ranch of Audubon
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 SOSP symposium encourages exchange among scientists, land managers, local landowners and citizens about the unique and diverse resources of the Sonoita Plain.
The SOSP symposium is sponsored by the Cienega Watershed Partnership and National Audubon Society with support from partnering organizations, The Nature Conservancy and U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
Last year, our primary thematic focus was on science applications, and included a panel discussion of ranchers, land managers, and scientists. There were also a wide range of presentations on current research and project activity (see Proceedings, linked below).
Please note that space is limited for the Symposium, so we encourage you to register early to reserve a space. Registration for the 2018 Science on the Sonoita Plain Symposium will be added soon.
