Balsa Man, A Diminute Effigy For A Reduced Community

Balsa Man Build - together

For those of you not making the trek out to Burning Man this year, Camp Riverton is organizing Balsa Man this Saturday, August 30th at Baker Beach (the location of the original Burning Man events) where they will be burning a tiny man made out of, yes you guessed it, balsa wood.

Balsa Man is a 3’ tall replica of Burning Man. Here are some photos of it being built.
