Fly Ranch

Fly Ranch is a 3,800 acre ranch in Northern Nevada home to Fly Geyser. We’ve hosted open campouts, work days, and hundreds of public nature walks. Projects are organized by volunteers and tend to focus on reconnection, healing, human creativity, and the land. Our programmatic goal is to produce public benefits as an agricultural site with regenerative cycles for food, water, power, shelter, waste, and air. If you’d like to visit throughout the year, you can join a nature walk, Stewardship Day, Labyrinth walk, or become a Fly Guardian. Information is available at flyranch.org.

Fly Ranch Nature Walks

Friends of Black Rock-High Rock offer 2.5-hour Nature Walks in partnership with the Burning Man Project. Explore two distinct portions of the stunning 3,800-acre property. Experience Fly Ranch in small groups, maintaining a physical distance while making a connection with the desert and geothermic landscape of Northwestern Nevada.  Walk slowly, take in the scenery and experience the art and nature of Fly Ranch.

2022 Sustainability Report: Year Three Update

Wed. Jul 20, 2022 12:00pm – 1:30pm PDT

The climate emergency impacts everything we value as humans and as members of the global Burning Man community. That’s why we published our 2030 Sustainability Roadmap. Our goals are to handle waste ecologically, be regenerative, and be carbon negative. It’s possible that we could address climate change and create a new paradigm if every city, organization, and land project met these three goals. Join us July 20th for a progress update on the three year anniversary of when we published the roadmap. We will host a Zoom call where you can join the chat and stream the call on Facebook Live.
