Raven-Wolf Opens This Weekend!


Well, Spring has finally arrived and with it comes the opening of the gates at Raven-Wolf Nature Sanctuary this weekend! This is the first of several weekends that are used to not only clear away the vestiges of Winter but prepare for the upcoming 4th Annual Goddess Gathering Reborn to be help June 20 – 23, 2019.

If you don’t have plans for this coming weekend and feel the itch to get back out in Nature, why not come out and join us? It looks to be a fairly good weekend with temperatures in the 60s on Friday and Saturday. If this sounds like something you would like to do, please contact Mary T. Borden, our coordinator, at (740) 241-9340. You can either call or text, but if you do text, be sure to put “Raven-Wolf” on it. She can tell you when the gates will open for sure and give you directions, if you’ve never been there before.

In case you’re not aware, or don’t remember, if you come out and help with the work that needs to be done, you can camp for free! It’s just our way of saying, “Thank you.” for helping us out. It also will go toward a discount on the 2020 GGR admission fee. All kinds of perks just for coming out to be in Nature!

The nights will be chilly so, if you do intend to camp, be sure to bring plenty of warm clothing, blankets, sleeping bags, etc. There are fire rings for building fires to cook and keep warm. Even if you just come out for the day, wear sturdy shoes, layer your clothing to stay warm, and bring gloves to protect your hands.

If you can’t make it this weekend, the next work/camp weekend will be April 12 -14. You can find a complete list of the work/camp weekends on the web site under “2019 Calendar of Weekends – at a Glance” We hope you’ll find some time to come see Raven-Wolf and meet the folks who are regularly there working to make it a wonderful place to be close to Nature.

Hope to see you soon!

  1. Weather forecast is calling for 70% chance of rain on Saturday. We will still be going down. I can not emphasise the need the critical need to come prepared for the weather. Everything including your food should be well thought out to generate and/or preserve your body heat. Keeping warm and as dry as possible is a must.
    The gate will be open at 3pm on Saturday. Work schedules and family health issues have not allowed for our usual Friday gate opening.
    Whether you are new to Raven-Wolf or a seasoned veteran please take a moment to download our Medical Form and bring it filled out. This form can save your life if something happens & we need to transport you to the nearest hospital. My schedule is extremely full this week. If you call please leave a voicemail if I can’t answer the phone & I will get back to you. When you leave your message let me know latest time call back.😀
    Work for the weekend usual entails clearing roadways & paths of fallen debris from trees, either branches or whole trees. Sturdy work gloves are highly recommended. We have tools there to help out, but donations are always welcome, or if you have a favorite rake or tool go ahead & bring it. Our rental cabin has been claimed for this weekend already.
