This years event will also be held in Bishop, California and take place on March 22-24, 2019. Nestled in the beautiful Owens River Valley in the Eastern Sierras, Bishop not only offers world-class bouldering but also provides hundreds of sport and trad routes nearby.

We hope that our Women’s Climbing Festival will not only reach veteran female climbers but also provide a safe space for beginner climbers to come and learn more about all that climbing has to offer!

WCF welcomes all women (cis and trans) and enbies to join us at the Women’s Climbing Festival. Our goal is to create and maintain a safe and diverse space where consent and respect are our first priorities. Harassment of any kind (unwanted contact, verbal or physical abuse, racism, homophobia, transphobia, body-shaming, etc.) will NOT be tolerated and will lead to being asked to leave. 

The schedule is subject to change.  Clinics and workshops are subject to limited attendance.

BLM: Adoption Incentive Program

To encourage more adopters to give a wild horse or burro a good home, the Adoption Incentive Program provides up to $1,000 to adopt an untrained wild horse or burro from the BLM. The goal of the program is to reduce BLM’s recurring costs to care for unadopted and untrained wild horses and burros while helping to enable the BLM to confront a growing over-population of wild horses and burros on fragile public rangelands.

The Adoption Incentive Program allows qualified adopters to receive up to $1,000 when adopting an eligible wild horse or burro on or after March 12, 2019. Under this program, adopters are eligible to receive:

  • $500 within 60 days of adoption of an untrained wild horse and burro

  • $500 within 60 days of titling the animal.

The incentive is available for all untrained animals that are eligible for adoption, including animals at BLM facilities, off-site events and on the Online Corral. A $25 fee applies at the time of adoption.

UPCOMING ADOPTION EVENTS

March 30 - Northern Nevada Correctional Center, Stewart Conservation Camp, Carson City, NV
