    We'll see you there!

    Friends of Nevada Wilderness is hosting a monthly meeting the first Thursday of every month and we're calling it our Wild Speaker Series! This is a great way for folks who are interested in conservation to learn about current issues. Arrive at 6:45 to socialize and snack before the presentation at 7 pm.

    The Las Vegas Bearpoppy needs your help!  Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness and Friends of Gold Butte for a day to improve some of this sensitive plant's habitat in Gold Butte National Monument.  We'll use our muscles to restore a vehicle intrusion that mars terrain where the Las Vegas Bearpoppy is found.

    The Las Vegas Bearpoppy grows in clumps of hairy, silvery leaves with delicate yellow flowers that shoot up in the spring.  This plant is found in the harshest and driest of soils in the Mojave desert and favors gypsum-rich soils.  

    What You'll Need: Sturdy closed-toe shoes, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt.  A water bottle.  (We'll have plenty of water for refills.)  Lunch & snacks for yourself.

    This project is generously funded through a KEEN Effect grant.  KEEN is committed to protecting the places we all play and supports non-profits throughout the world who are dedicated to doing just that.  And, KEEN goes above and beyond supporting on-the-ground stewardship.  KEEN's Live Monumental campaign was an integral part of Gold Butte being permanently protected as a National Monument!
