Everyone's Welcome to the 8th Natural History of the Gila Symposium
Please plan to attend the Eighth Natural History of the Gila Symposium, to be held in the Global Resource Center of WNMU in Silver City from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on February 27 and 28, 2020, with field trips offered on Saturday, February 29. Thanks to the Gila National Forest Service ADMISSION IS FREE and that can't be beat. Go to the Symposium's website for further details and more news as it develops.
There is still time for anyone, especially those with an archaeological specialty, to present a paper at the Symposium. The deadline to submit your paper's abstract, however, is January 20, 2020, so step lively now and contact Dr. William Norris of the Symposium's Steering Committee immediately.
The Symposium's mission is to provide a venue for researchers, land managers, conservationists, educators, and the general public to meet and share information and ideas gathered from the Gila Region including watersheds and neighboring areas extending into southwestern New Mexico, southeastern Arizona and Mexico.
This annual event is the product of an ongoing partnership among the United States Forest Service, the Western Institute of Lifelong Learning, the Bureau of Land Management, the Gila Chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Mexico, the Audubon Society (Southwestern New Mexico Chapter), New Mexico State University, and Western New Mexico University. Treat yourself to learning more about the richness of our own backyard -- and bring a friend!
