For our habitat restoration workdays, all you need is a pair of tough shoes or boots, a sweatshirt and coat if it’s cold, long pants, long-sleeved shirt, a water bottle, and a hat. We’ll supply work gloves and tools.

We strongly recommend against nylon or other synthetic fabrics, as sparks from the fire will melt holes in them.


Come rain, cold, or shine—we only stop work in downpours and lightning storms, and the fire’ll keep ya warm! When in doubt, check the events page, where we’ll post rare cancellations if necessary.


We encourage carpooling. Please comment on individual Facebook event pages or reach out to to try to organize carpools.
