Friends Rendezvous Hits its Sixth Year – Oct. 25-27, 2013

Our sixth annual Friends Rendezvous will be held October 25-27, 2013 at the Riverhouse Hotel & Convention Center along the banks of the beautiful Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon. Mark your calendars!

Together we go beyond raising awareness around conservation to leading it. The Friends Rendezvous is the only gathering that brings together the Friends of the National Conservation Lands to learn from one another.

This past year, we had 160 people representing 51 groups join us sharing some of the incredibly inspirational work that’s being done in the network on issues ranging from policy to organizational development to communications to fundraising. At the meeting, BLM unveiled the new wordmark for the National Conservation Lands which we anticipate seeing rolled out soon.
