The 2022 Tularosa Basin Conference is scheduled for June 2nd , 3rd , 4th , and tours on the 5th.  The presentation schedule has not been set at this time and tours are still being developed. We will announce periodic updates as we progress through the process of developing the conference components.

Activities will begin on the evening of June 2nd, at 6:00 pm , with a presentation by Deni Seymour, Ph.D. and Jornada Research Institute research associate, on her recent investigations of sites associated with the Coronado Expedition (1540/41) that she has found in southern Arizona. This evening is free and open to the public and will be held in grand ballroom of the convention center. The evening will also feature light fare, a cash bar, and a silent auction with items donated by local artists from Ruidoso, the proceeds to go to support Deni’s research and production of a documentary film on her findings and to help JRI. I cannot say enough about the importance of Deni’s research and her recent discoveries. Please visit with her following her presentation or during the conference to find out how you may be able to help support her ongoing investigations.

On June 3rd and 4th, we will have organized presentations by various scholars who will be presenting on subjects related to:

the history of the Ruidoso area
archaeological investigations in and around the Tularosa Basin
rock art, expression, and celestial associations
environment and ecological studies
Spanish Entrada and Colonial period

Tours to various sites/locations will be on June 5th. The tours are free of charge but reserved for those who have registered for the conference. Space will be limited, so I suggest that once we announce the various tours, you sign up early.

The registration form for the conference is attached to the bottom of the flier (see attachments). Whether you decide to pay via a check or by using the donate button on our website, we require that you return the registration form so we can get you into the system. (Please follow the instructions for returning the registration form on the flier).

Contact me via email if you have questions regarding your membership status and I will reply with your correct status.

We will have various discounts offered to JRI members at the conference on such items as our publications, some neat shirts (including Josephina Javalina shirts and long-sleeved SPF field shirts), coffee mugs, and other items. Registration fees help cover the cost of using the Ruidoso Convention Center over three days that we will be using it.

We are also accepting donations for individual and corporate sponsorship. Please contact me for more information about how to help.

We look forward to your support of this conference as we follow our mission statement and “engage the public”.
