2024 Black Rock Rendezvous


2024 Black Rock Rendezvous

Join Us at the 2024 Black Rock Rendezvous! 

Come join us out in the Black Rock Desert for a weekend full of learning, conservation, and the famous Dutch oven cook-off! This annual event brings together a large and varied group of people who love the Black Rock Desert. Partners for this event include Friends of Black Rock-High Rock and the Bureau of Land Management. 

We are still in the planning stages of this event...more information about the specific tours, volunteer projects, and presentations will be available soon. 

As always, this project is free! We will be providing breakfast with coffee on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday morning as well as a delicious dinner on Saturday and Sunday night. We have camping gear available to loan for those who need it. The road to the camping area should not require 4-wheel drive and high clearance. We will have limited space in Friends trucks to transport volunteers and carpooling is an option as well.
