Trees, Water & People invites you on a truly amazing adventure, offering an in-depth look at our Tribal Renewable Energy Program headquarters and a personal experience of Lakota culture. Let us show you the beauty of the traditional Lakota lands, the struggles of its people?s past and present, and the awe-inspiring stories of those working toward solutions.

Please bring your sense of adventure, humble respect, and flexibility on this one-of-a-kind trip. Dormitory-style lodging is provided at our training facility, the Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center (RCREC), on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. You will also have the opportunity to spend one or more nights in a traditional tipi on the RCREC campus. All meals, lodging, and TWP-provided entertainment and activities, are included in the cost of the trip.
