Writer’s Emerging was a retreat to connect with the land and participate in creative workshops. One participant noted: “The Writers Emerging program epitomizes the highest and most multi-faceted potential of what your organization and its resources can do.” Read an interview with event producer Yodassa Williams to learn more.
Since 2016 participants have found new uses for relics from when Fly Ranch was an airport, homestead, cattle ranch, and alfalfa farm. Hundreds of land stewards have cared for the land, made progress on non-native species management, and built new fences to graze 150 cows. Dozens of Fly Guardians have stewarded and protected the land and ecology. You can lead nature walks, become a Fly Guardian, or join a Stewardship Day.
