2021 Fall Conference IS ON!

November 14 - 17, 2021

Tuolumne County is one destination with three distinctly different vacations: Yosemite, the Gold Country, and the High Sierra. Explore one or all three! Tuolumne County is the outdoor enthusiast’s playground with year-round activities that include fishing, hiking, biking, wildlife watching, snow and water sports, horseback riding and so much more. Expect fall color, friendly folks and downhome fun when you attend the Outdoor Writer’s Association of California Fall Conference. Sonora will be the hub for your time here with plenty of activities reaching into every corner of the County. Great hospitality, fun meal events and exciting activities await you! 

Accommodations for the OWAC Fall Conference will be at the all-new Hotel Lumberjack located in historic downtown Sonora. Average weather in November can be quite mild with lows in the 40’s at night and highs in the 60’s.

Check out these activities!

Our hosts have arranged an amazing selection of guided and self-guided activities to choose from for OWAC conference participants. All included in the price of your conference ticket.
