“The Geotourism Corridor: Southern Arizona’s Gateway to Discovery”
Dr. Joaquin Ruiz, Dean of the UA College of Science and Vice President for Innovation, presents a new vision of Southern Arizona as a destination for international tourism by preserving and celebrating our region’s unique culture heritage, history, geology and biodiversity.
“The rugged topography of our region combined with our geographic location between the biological provinces of the Rocky Mountains to the north and Mexico’s Sierra Madre Occidental to the southeast,” Dr. Ruiz explains, “results in a unique mixing of species that makes our area one of the most biologically diverse in the world.”
Attendees can expect to be engaged and inspired by Dr. Ruiz’s presentation while learning about the beautiful and interesting elements that make Tucson and Southern Arizona an extremely special place to live and visit. Food and drinks available for purchase.
Show & Tell is presented by The Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry, whose mission is to create boundless possibilities for excellence through innovation, collaboration and community engagement at the University of Arizona and beyond. More details are available at Confluencenter.arizona.edu.
