September 24-25, 2016

Our Second Bi-Annual Steward Conference will be held at Pine Community Center on September 24-25th. We are thrilled to have the twin communities of Pine and Strawberry hosting our event this season

You can view/download the event flyer here.


The Gateway Communities of Pine and Strawberry are tucked beneath the Mogollon Rim, offering a welcome respite to those from the desert lowlands. The dramatic cliffs and shady ponderosa have made these communities a haven for recreation for decades.
The Pine Trailhead is the western terminus of the 50-mile Highline National Recreation Trail. The Highline and the AZT share an alignment for 17 miles through country rich with natural and cultural heritage. Come out and enjoy one of the most active and vibrant trail communities in the state!

Saturday’s conference will be held at the Pine Community Center, on Highway 87 north of Hardscrabble Mesa Road. (Google Map).
