342You are invited to join us for the seventh annual Sacred Water, Sacred Forests Action Camp, May 25th – 28th, 2018 – A Gathering for Celebration, Community, Movement Building, Ecology, and Land Defense!
Based in Spring Valley, Nevada (between the towns of Ely and Baker), the Action Camp is a gathering of organizers, ecologists, indigenous people, water grab opponents, forest defenders, concerned individuals, and Great Basin residents.
Over Memorial Day Weekend, we will convene at Cleve Creek Campground, 12 miles north of Highway 6-50 on road 893, at the base of the Schell Creek Mountains.
We will spend the weekend exploring areas threatened by the Las Vegas Water Grab as well as forest slopes and basins being destroyed under the disproven ideology of “Pinyon-Juniper forest invasion.” We will workshop, create art, engage in direct action, share skills, tell stories, sit around the campfire, sing, and enjoy the deep dark night sky.
If you are in love with the desert, we invite you to attend!
The Great Basin is a beautiful and remote place, full of rugged limestone mountains, broad valleys, a startling array of wildlife, and some of the remotest locations in the west. It is sacred to many indigenous people like the Goshute, Shoshone, Paiute, and Washoe nations, who have lived and died here for countless generations.
The Water Tour will take place in Eastern Nevada, beginning near Great Basin National Park and continuing through Spring, Snake, Cave, Lake, and Delamar Valleys. Though we’ll be near the full-service towns of Ely and Baker, we will spend time on remote dirt roads.
