The CroneA nightmarish bound wooden crone. Based on a myth of golems once tasked to protect farmland and homesteads. Meant to be tucked away and creepy.Seed Money Grant Round
MesmerizeRelax and watch the mesmerizing roll of flames.Jana McKinny & Tania Marie
TEMPLE OF DEATHThe TEMPLE OF DEATH is be a meditative space for participants to ponder mortality, entropy, and their time on and relation to the earth.
The Temple is decorated with bones and antlers and is aesthetically representative of the sun-bleached high desert locale that has been a home to Apogaea these last few years.

Tower of Redundancy TowerClimb up our 25 foot tall crows nest, looks scary but fear not - redundancy upon redundancy makes it perfectly safe. Great for stargazing or sunburning (now with optional shade!). Voted most face-melting sunrise view at Apogaea three years standing... but seriously, sit down up there.Andy Blair

RangersRangers are community members and participants who help Apogaeans who are having a less than ideal time at the burn. We help participants resolve conflicts, connect the community with resources, provide safety perimeters, and help those having an overwhelming experience. We are not law enforcement, we are participants here to help. If you, a camp mate, or a fellow participant is in distress or needs help, find someone wearing a radio and have them call for a Ranger. If you witness or hear a nonconsensual assault, find someone wearing a radio and have them call for a Ranger. Rangers will also be roaming the city in pairs, dressed in Khaki. Rangers will always be stationed at HQ, next to medical. We're a friendly crew, so feel free to drop by HQ to learn more about what we do or to share some love.[email protected]
