      Fly Ranch Nature Walks 2018

      Friends of Black Rock-High Rock is excited to offer 3-hour guided nature walks of Fly Ranch in partnership with Burning Man Project. Our walks explore a portion of the stunning 3,800 acre property and give participants an immersive experience with the vast and dynamic environment recently acquired by Burning Man Project. Participants will interact with knowledgeable tour guides to learn more about the flora, fauna, and natural resources on the Fly Ranch property and surrounding areas. Included in the walk is the stunning Fly Geyser, a unique and iconic geothermal geyser that constantly sprays water reaching five feet in the air, depositing minerals, and enabling the growth of multi-colored algae on its surrounding natural terraces. For more information about the property and Burning Man’s Fly Ranch Project, visit: https://flyranch.burningman.org. In the future, we will host gatherings specifically for photography. These walks are meant to be a direct experience with the land. We will encourage device-free participation. These walking visits will occur rain or shine. For insurance and liability reasons, we are not able to accommodate soaking in the pools at this time. In Gerlach, there is a Gas Station, Motel, Bruno's Country Club (restaurant and bar), the Miner's Club (cafe and bar), and Joe's Bar. You can either spend the night at the motel in Gerlach, camp out on neighboring BLM land in the area, or stay overnight in Reno. Empire Store is 6 miles to the South of Gerlach, and has some convenience store amenities and camping supplies. The Friends of Black Rock-High Rock Visitor Center also has some drinks, snacks, emergency supplies, and educational material for sale. Tickets for this experience are donation-based. A deposit will be charged to your credit card to reserve your place on these limited capacity trips. After the visit, you have the option of donating all or a portion of your deposit in support of Fly Ranch, or receiving a full refund of your deposit. If you do not attend, the full amount will be considered a donation and will not be refunded. Both Burning Man Project and Friends of Black Rock-High Rock are nonprofit organizations. Your donations enable us to continue to offer walking visits and help fulfill our nonprofit missions. Suggested Donation - $40.00

      Cost: 40.00
