NEW DATE!! Join us on October 10, 2020 for the
Grand Canyon Hikers & Backpackers Symposium
Given the extraordinary events of the past weeks, the Grand Canyon Hikers Symposium organizing committee has decided to reschedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are taking this action with the health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and the larger community in mind. In so doing we join a very long list of cultural, educational, and sporting events that have suspended, cancelled, or rescheduled.
The Symposium will now take place on October 10, 2020,
all other details including location, time, and events before and after the symposium, will remain as planned.
We are grateful and delighted that NAU Cline Library has been able to accommodate a rescheduling. We very much hope you can make it on the new date as planned! Notifications will go out shortly via Eventbrite to all attendees who have registered. If you have done so, expect to receive an email via that channel. If you have any questions feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regards, – Chris Forsyth and Committee
