Mattole Forest Defense Training Camp May 24-27

We just got this call out from the forest defenders in the Mattole:
Come hang out, learn awesome skills, and get plugged in with your local forest defense campaigns!

We will be gathering from the 24th until the 27th of May for an Action Training Camp in the Mattole River watershed.  We recognize this land was stolen from the indigenous Mattole people.
Please RSVP for directions.

Workshops and discussions will include:

  • Strategic non-violent direct action

  • Know your rights and security culture,

  • Plant walk!

  • Tree climbing training and knots

  • Ground-truthing

  • Navigating in the Mountains

  • Herbal first aid.

  • Tarpology

  • Trauma informed care

  • Co-counseling

This camp is in support of the ongoing old-growth forest defense on Rainbow Ridge in the Mattole watershed. For at least 20 years, forest defenders have climbed trees, blocked logging roads and locked themselves to logging equipment to stop the destruction of these ancient trees.

This camp site is ADA accessible; for other accessibility needs please include in your RSVP and we will do our best.

Help us to co-create an inclusive safer space where people feel good about addressing oppressive behaviors to heal and unlearn them.

In solidarity,
MATC Organizers
