Historic Park Inn Hotel / Enhanced Park Inn Registration Package

Although the Conservancy would like everyone to have this overnight experience in Mason City, the Historic Park Inn Hotel does not have enough rooms to accommodate everyone during our annual conference, October 10-14, 2012. As a result, the Conservancy will hold a drawing to select registrants eligible to reserve one of the coveted Historic Park Inn Hotel rooms during the conference. The drawing will be selected from all conference registrants who select the Enhanced Park Inn Registration Package option, which will include full conference registration and the opportunity to book a sleeping room at the Park Inn, plus benefit dinner, set of conference DVDs and a tax-deductible contribution to the FLWBC.
