We are excited to host our members at the Desert Botanical Garden on Wednesday, February 27 from 6:00 to 9:30 pm to kick off our conference and to celebrate WCRI's 35th Anniversary!


Stroll the world's finest collection of arid plants from deserts of the world in a unique outdoor setting. Then, when the sun goes down, join us for an outdoor networking reception as you enjoy the Garden's premiere exhibition ― Electric Desert. Watch in amazement as cacti and the desert become a living canvas in this mesmerizing display of light and original music. Following the reception, a delicious dinner will be served. 


Transportation to and from the Desert Botanical Garden will be available from the Downtown Phoenix Renaissance Hotel, which is where our conference is being held. Buses will be leaving the hotel between 5:15pm and 5:45pm. 


This is free event for members. You are not required to be registered for the conference to attend. However, if you would also like to register for the conference and haven't already done so, click here.
