The annual URARA symposium will be held in Green River, Utah October 6-9, 2017. The city is located on the Green River, a major tributary of the Colorado River.
The event includes two days of field trips (at least), two days of fabulous speakers and the business meeting. There will a dinner, auction, delicious Green River watermelons, fun and renewing of old friendships.
The rock art in the Green River is among the best in the state. The beautiful canyons of the San Rafael Swell are located to the west, Canyonlands National Park is to the south and the Bookcliffs to the north.
The 2010 census indicates the town has about 900 residents. It was originally located along the Old Spanish Trail. History, rock art and many, many interesting places to visit (including Crystal Geyser) await us.
