We encourage participants to keep the registration lanyard you receive this year  and reuse them for the next Solstice event. For those who would rather not have another item to add to their Solstice bag, there will be bins in registration and the kitchen for people to drop off their lanyards. The lanyards will be cleaned and then re-used at the following event.

Leave No Trace

Our firm policy is to leave all campsites cleaner than when we arrived. Out of respect for each other and the land, please allow plenty of time to properly break down and pack up your campsite. Leave no trace means to remove anything that doesn’t belong in the natural environment, such as tissues, watermelon rinds, tents, sleeping bags, tarps, or clothing.

Winter Solstice Sadhana Celebrations are pack-it-in and pack-it-out events. Remember that your tent, your shoes, or a flashlight become trash when left behind. If you are planning on purchasing a tent and leaving it behind, please consider registering for a space in one of our rental  cabins.

Lost and Found

If you see any items left behind, please pick them up and place them in the nearest landfill, recycling, or compost bin, or take them to the Lost and Found on the porch at Admin, as appropriate.

Recycling/Waste Management

We provide plastic and glass receptacles for recycling; they are well-marked and in convenient areas throughout the sight. Please respect the process of sustainability that we are trying to cultivate in this Aquarian Age

We also provide compost bins for scraps from snacks and meals. Some of this goes to farms in the area to feed animals so make sure if you compost your tea bags or anything that has staples or other kinds of indigestible materials you remove them prior to composting.

The landfill bin is where the Green Team requests your consideration. In the mindset that “throw away” means landfill, please be aware of what you consider “trash” and what might actually be better suited in the compost or recycling bins.
