Arizona Riparian Council 26th Annual Meeting

Sustaining Urban Rivers: Visions and Actions Across the Southwest and in Metro Phoenix

This year’s three-day, annual meeting workshop will bring together managers, researchers, and stakeholders involved in the Salt River-Phoenix metropolitan area to engage in a dialogue about how to make the river a more accessible, desirable place for people and wildlife.

Invited speakers will share their experiences in developing, managing, and restoring urban rivers in other arid land cities. Participants will conduct working sessions, each initiated by short presentations by panelists with particular expertise in the Salt River. The meeting also includes a field trip to the Rio Salado Audubon Center.

See flyer for complete schedule. Individuals may submit abstracts for a poster session on research, monitoring, and restoration of desert rivers. Those are due March 15, 2013. See flyer for abstract requirements.

Co-sponsored by ASU's Central Arizona-Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research Project and ASU's Center for Biology and Society.
