Wild Roots Feral Futures 2017 is less than a week away! Below, you will find the site location info. But first, a few final announcements and considerations…
If you have any workshops, performances, skill shares, activities, etc. that you’d like to announce ahead of time, there’s a forum for that! If you are seeking a ride or have one to offer, there’s a ride share board too! There are also forums to talk about trans & women’s space, kitchen, food, and water infrastructure, medical, conflict engagement, youth & inter-generational activities, and other infrastructure, gear, & supply needs. WRFF is founded on and operates on a DIY (do-it-yourself) ethic, so these forums, though often underutilized, are there for you to use, so please do!
We also continue to have many gear and supply needs, as well as wanting to be able to provide travel stipends to low income and front line community members joining us to share their skills, experience, and knowledge. In the spirit of solidarity (not charity) and mutual aid, we are asking everyone to contribute to and share our online fundraiser. You can also contribute via Paypal, and of course, bring supply & gear donations to the woods.
Wild Roots Feral Futures 2017 will take place along Turkey Creek, about 2.5 miles up Turkey Creek Trail (580), in the San Juan National Forest. The trail head is at the end of Jackson Mountain Road, USFS 37, approximately 6 miles East of Pagosa Springs, CO on Highway 160 (near mile marker 151). (Please report any errors or lack of clarity in directions to feralfutures [at] riseup [dot] net)
We want to note that WRFF takes place at a relatively high elevation in a rather arid environment, so staying well hydrated is crucial! We *highly* recommend you come equipped with your own water filtration capacity (the Sawyer mini-filters are affordable and widely available) to minimize burden on the camp kitchen water filtration system. There are moderate inclines on the hike in to the site, so take it slow and easy, rest often, and drink lots of water! We recommend hiking in your camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, etc.) first and making return trips to the parking for other gear and supplies. Be prepared for inclement weather, ranging from hot and sunny to cold, wet, and rainy.
See you in the woods!
