About THE “RENDY”

For over 15 years we’ve been meeting in the Black Rock Desert each Memorial Day Weekend. The Rendezvous is a family-friendly weekend of conservation, education and exploration.

We’ve hosted a wide variety of speakers and workshops over the years, from in-depth tours of High Rock Canyon, hands-on Rocketry programs for kids, ranching and historical tours, introduction to medicinal native plants, geology, archaeology and so much more.

Each year brings new topics and speakers, new trails and new faces. Each year also features a conservation project where we give back to the land that gives us so much.

Covid-19 has dealt the world a sideways blow, but we are rolling with the punches and taking advantage of modern technology to bring the Rendezvous into your home – wherever that may be.

The upside to this is that we can now be together with people who were previously unable to make the trek to the desert.

The downside? We haven’t figured out how to port our famous dutch-oven cookoff into your homes!
