sandwiches, chips, fruit and beverages). Local restaurants are available
for breakfasts and dinners. Workshop hours are from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
The workshop is open to the general public, however, preference will be
given to Native Americans, especially those who plan on using this
information to help others. Non-natives will be put on a waiting list until
6 weeks before the workshop.
Free camping is available in the national forest and lodging in nearby motels.
The straw bale shelter built during the workshop will be based on the Free
Straw Bale Emergency Shelter Plans on the Geiger Research Institute of
Sustainable Building webpage.
