The 2012 UCOWR/NIWR Conference, Managing Water, Energy, & Food in an Uncertain World, is being held July 17-19 in beautiful, historic Santa Fe.  Plenary Speakers and Themes include:

The "Santa Fe High Road Scenic Tour" (Monday July 16) is a guided tour that is sure to please participants looking for beautiful scenery, great food, and even a little education!  There is only room for 30 on the tour, so make sure to register early.

La Fonda, the Inn at the End of the Santa Fe Trail, is the conference venue. Participants of the 2006 conference loved it so much we decided to make it our first ever return visit.  A limited number of rooms is available at the conference rate of $154 (single or double) and we expect the rooms will go fast.  Call 1-800-523-5002 #1<tel:1-800-523-5002%20%231>, and ask for the UCOWR Conference Rate. Regular hotel rates will go into effect when UCOWR's block of rooms is filled or by Noon Thursday, June 14 (MT).

Registration is now available online, with various payment options available.  Be sure to register by June 17 to get the "Early-Bird Discount" of up to $100.

The Preliminary Program and Online Registration links are easily accessed at<>.  The Preliminary Program offers more detailed information on the technical program, guided tour and other special events, La Fonda rates and reservations, registration instructions, and more.
