Invitation to the URARA Symposium in Price, Utah

Aug 29, 2011

We are very pleased to have the opportunity to combine the Nine Mile Canyon Coalition's 2011 Fall Gathering celebration with the URARA (Utah Rock Art Research Association) Symposium to be held in Price, Utah, that will be held from September 22-26, 2011. We wanted everyone to have the opportunity to participate in this important, informative, and fun URARA event.

The Coalition will co-host an opening reception with URARA on Thursday, September 22, at the CEU Museum.

URARA has scheduled a great group of speakers who will make presentations on Saturday, Sept. 24 and Sunday, Sept. 25 at the Carbon County Events Center. These include presentations about rock art in Nine Mile Canyon by our President, Pam Miller, along with two other presentations by Jerry Spangler and Layne Miller. There will be many additional interesting presentations about rock art in other areas.

URARA is graciously allowing Nine Mile Canyon Coalition members to register for the Symposium at URARA member rates. We have attached a registration application for the URARA Symposium to this newsletter which indicates your affiliation with the Nine Mile Canyon Coalition. Note that there is a late fee for registration after September 12, 2011.

Please note: Due to insurance-related issues, only URARA members will be eligible to participate in the field trips that will take place on Friday, September 23 and Monday, September 26. Should you wish to participate in field trips, you will need to join URARA and fill out the Field Trip Registration form found in the latest version of Vestiges found on the URARA website at: http://www.utahrockart.org/vestiges/archives/2011-08.pdf

This edition of Vestiges (August 2011, Volume 31, Number 7) contains additional information about the Symposium, including speakers, activities, and other matters.

We highly value URARA's important efforts in protecting and preserving the rock art and other sites in Nine Mile Canyon and elsewhere.

We hope you will be able to attend the symposium!
