Spend the 4th of July on the Black Rock Desert! 

Join Friends of Black Rock-High Rock out on the Black Rock Desert playa for a beautiful, informative and all-around good time this Independence Day.  This is a Leave No Trace camp out event.

When: June 30th through July 2nd
Where: We plan on camping at GPS coordinates: 40°49’33.3″N 119°12’45.0″W. We have weather contingency plans, but this is what we’re going with until further notice.
Activities will include tours of the area, camp games, great food, and moon and star gazing. We will be leading a guided hike up Steamboat Rock from 9 am to 12 pm on Saturday. Happy Hour with hors d’oeuvres and lawn games will be held on Saturday from 5 to 7pm. Porta-potties will be available on-site.
