Indigenous youth, community members, elders and outdoor guides join together for 3 days of camping, hiking, foraging, cooking and connecting in Bluff and Bears Ears National Monument. We invite Indigenous middle and high school youth in care to reconnect with their Native cultures by registering and joining us on this trip. Students will learn about traditional spring medicinal and edible plants, spend time enjoying nature, cooking traditional foods and sleeping under the stars.
Native middle and high schoolers effected by foster care are invited to attend. We will be meeting at Sand Island Campground at 1pm on 4/14.
Organized in partnership with Stephanie Benally of Utah Foster Care, Tara Benally of the Rural Utah Project and Meredith Benally of Utah Dine Bikeyah.
Additional sponsors include: Good Trip Adventures and Rise Outside
