The meeting will be held at Biosphere 2, about 45 minutes north of Tucson, Arizona.

Biosphere 2 has on site housing, which can accommodate about half of our anticipated attendance, and for the other half we will arrange a nearby hotel block, with shuttles available for transportation to Biosphere 2.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be available on site. There are basically no other practical (i.e. even remotely nearby) options for meals. We will have snacks and drinks available for off hours, and there are fridges and microwaves in the on-site housing.

The area is a desert, so is very dry and sunny, and you should be prepared with sunglasses, hats, sunscreen, and water. The typical highs in late March are mid-60s, and lows in the 40s (Fahrenheit), a bit cooler than Tucson.

Do take care on and around site regarding Arizona wildlife, since there are known to be rattlesnakes, scorpions, and coyotes in the area.
