This theatrical performance tells the story of the legendary activist Granny D, through song and story.
As a reminder, the Lazy Black Bear is a FRAGRANCE-FREE ZONE! That means no scented lotions, laundry products, perfumes, hair care, etc. You can wash your clothes with plain Borax and baking soda before packing the week before packing, and dry your clothes on a clothesline. We also ask that you make other accommodations for your animal companions, as there are already an abundance and variety of animals that call this place Home.
Thanks for your cooperation!
Sacred Stone Camp
We will be taking a collection of donations at the Reunion for the Sacred Stone Camp, currently blockading the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota. Donations of cash, winter camping gear, winter clothing, nonperishable food, tools (specifically shovels, pickaxes, and axes), and other useful items will be delivered to the Sacred Stone Camp immediately following the Reunion.
