Sinkyone Indian Land, Water & Culture Hike

July 16, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm


Please join Sanctuary Forest on Saturday, July 16th for the Sinkyone Indian Land, Water and Culture hike! The hike will be led by Hawk Rosales, a representative of the InterTribal Sinkyone Wilderness Council and will be held in the Sinkyone Wilderness State Park. The Sinkyone Council, founded in 1986, is a nonprofit conservation consortium of 10 federally recognized California Indian Tribes that established the first InterTribal Wilderness area in 1997 on the Lost Coast. Hike leaders will discuss the cultural history of the Sinkyone Indian people and contemporary efforts by the Sinkyone Council and local Tribes to protect and restore their cultural environment, especially along the coast. Please meet at the Sanctuary Forest office in Whitethorn at 10:30 a.m. Hikers are asked to bring high-clearance, four-wheel drive vehicles to help with car-pooling down to the Needle Rock Visitors Center. This moderate, 2-mile hike will return to the Sanctuary Forest office at around 4:00 p.m. Bring a lunch and water and wear sturdy hiking shoes. This is a group excursion, and participants are asked to stay together at all times. The hike is free of charge, though donations are gladly accepted and help Sanctuary Forest offer this program year after year. For questions or clarifications, contact Anna at anna@sanctuaryforest.org, or call 707-986-1087 x 9#. Hope to see you there!
