***Rainbow Family of Living Light Detail***

Update 1

The 2016 Rainbow Family of Living Light national gathering is being held on the Green Mountain National Forest near Danby, VT.

The National Incident Command Team charged with managing the event in cooperation with the law enforcement agencies from Vermont became fully operational on 6/19/16.

Approximately 200 Rainbow Family members are currently encamped at a gathering site on Forest Road 10 in Mount Tabor.

On 6/19/16, 4 warning notices, 4 citations for traffic and drug violations, and one arrest for DUI.

Two thefts have been reported in surrounding communities, including Fred the dog from the Rutland humane society and fire wood from a local resident.

U.S. Forest Service resource specialists are working with Rainbow Family members on resource protection issues and properly implementing the operations plan.

Local residents who visit the gathering site should proceed with caution. Traffic is congested, parking is limited, and visibility is reduced due to dusty roads.
