Meet directors Jill and Rick McBee have generously offered to host a bunk/camp/potluck for participants at their nearby property. Contact them at the email below for more details. Overnight camping at the McBee's is suggested if you plan to do the Catherine Creek event the following day. Please email Jill with your intentions.
