This weekend-long event brought together folks from near and far (from at least 14 US states and 6 countries!) for a long weekend of programs and projects in and around the spectacular landscape and community of Green River in Southern Utah.  

We'll be sharing more images and recaps from the big event in the coming days, but in the meantime here are some images to give you a glimpse of the weekend.  Also, please let us know if you have any stories, photos, videos, or other documentation or personal accounts from the event that you would like to contribute to the HDTS Archive!
