2019 Site Steward Annual Conference

Thank you for a successful conference!

The first weekend of November in northern Arizona was perfect.  Arizona Site Stewards, Land Managers and Regional Coordinators enjoyed cool sunny days and crisp fall nights while attending two days of workshops and presentations at the Grand Canyon National Park during it's centennial year celebration.  On Sunday attendees were treated to a day for cultural excursions in and around the Park.
