2013 EF! Round River Rendezvous

8 Aug

We are thrilled to announce that Croatan Earth First! will be hosting next summer’s rendezvous in North Carolina.

We’re already scouting out some beautiful locations that will have lots of swimming and hiking. The location will most likely be in the Piedmont or the Eastern end of the mountainous regions. We’re hoping to bring in more primitive skills and plant/mushroom identification to the next gathering. We’re looking for folks to host workshops, and to submit ideas for workshops/panels they’d like to see. We’re going to need lots of funds to put on the rondy, and we’ve already begun fundraising with a recent puppet show that brought in 400 dollars. If you have access to money please consider donating to our wepay. If you have money you can put aside for us as bail money, that will also make a difference with our upcoming action next summer, and you can get that money back!

How you can help:

Donate material support: tarps, rope, climbing gear, walkie talkies, water filtration systems, REI Gift cards, bail money, money for supplies. Bring your mountain bikes, canoes or kayaks for others to use over the week.

Donate your time: Offer to host a workshop, or to help with the kitchen crew, help us haul supplies in or out of the forest with your truck. Help with set up/breakdown/clean-up before or after the gathering.

Offer workshop ideas or speakers by e-mail suggestions to croatanearthfirst (at) gmail.com

2012 EF! Round River Rendezvous

9 Jun

Location finally announced!

After a grueling search for the ultimate EF! Round River Rendezvous (RRR) site that took us to the ends of the universe, we believe we have found it! Less than 70 miles north of Edward Abbey’s childhood home on a little half million acre forest just down PA Rt. 666 (Allegheny National Forest). We will camp with excellent swimming holes and giant trees under one of the most star filled skies in the North East. The nearest major cities are Pittsburg, Erie, PA and Buffalo, NY.

Go to marcellusearthfirst.org for directions, and post on the ride board right here.

This will be a 7-day campout (July 1-7), a gathering of resistance to dirty, destructive energy extraction Continue reading
