The Rusty Anvil

 reconnecting marginalized communities to their place within the natural world through mindful wilderness trips and place-based skills while serving as a platform for cultural transformation.

Support and Donate

The Rusty Anvil is focused on building intimate relationships with nature that empowers marginalized individuals to engage in environmental action while supporting self-reflection and awareness. We seek to encourage participants to collaboratively work towards healing ancestral-based trauma and reshaping the way we connect to the natural world.


In order to ensure that The Rusty Anvil can continue to serve as a platform for cultural transformation, and hold space for our communities to reconnect to place within themselves and the natural world, we need your  continued support.

Donate to support our immersion programs, or drop off gear to our gear library.
