I am very excited to announce that the AFA Desert Hawking Classic 2023 will return to Oracle, AZ at the Univeristy of Arizona's Biosphere2, January 26-29, 2020. The Biosphere is an all-in-one venue that will provide for our speakers, workshops, weathering yard, picnic/bbq, lodging (yes, lodging too!) and banquet needs. The Biosphere is a beautiful and unique location for our meet and right in the middle of thousands of acres of public land. Available nearby quarry include; Black Tailed Jackrabbits, Antelope Jackrabbits, Cottontail, and Quail.

Alternative lodging is nearby however I don't think you'll want to miss staying in the amazing casitas on the Biosphere grounds.
