Sierra Chapter hosted the 51st Annual WRS in 2022
Our theme "Reconnecting, Adapting, Overcoming" was woven throughout the event. Peruse presentations from the Symposium below.
Sierra Chapter once again hosted the WRS at Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite. The Symposium was complete with a Monday tour of the Yosemite Valley to discuss programs at Yosemite National Park as presented by staff at the Yosemite Conservatory and Mariposa County Public Works. The exhibit hall was sold out and Technical Sessions were held Tuesday through Thursday with the Keynote Address from SWANA Executive Director & CEO, David Biderman, over breakfast on Tuesday morning. The fun was had on Wednesday evening with dinner followed by a party in the Pavillion. View Technical Sessions - Topics and Presenters | View ALL WRS Conference Documents
