Flagstaff and Lodging

The 13th Biennial Conference for Science and Management on the Colorado Plateau and Southwest Region will take place on the campus of Northern Arizona University in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona, at the High Country Conference Center. Flagstaff is the largest city in northern Arizona, and one of the highest elevation cities in the United States, sitting at almost 7,000 feet. Historic downtown Flagstaff is charming, offering a variety of restaurants and watering holes. In addition to a range of visitor amenities, Flagstaff is surrounded by the ponderosa pine forests of the Coconino Nation Forest and natural wonders, ranging from the San Francisco Peaks to Grand Canyon. Flagstaff is also situated in close proximity to several Native American nations, including the Navajo, Hopi, Havasupai, and Yavapai, adding to the community’s unique cultural heritage.

The Flagstaff Convention and Visitors Bureau can provide details about local attractions, maps, and dining suggestions.
