This event features an array of Colorado River experts speaking about critical topics along 'America's Nile.' In addition to discussing current conditions and future options, we will celebrate the publication of the Colorado River Compact centennial volume, Cornerstone at the Confluence: Navigating the Colorado River Compact's Next Century. The UA Press will have books available for purchase and signing by Cornerstone authors at a reception immediately after the symposium.
