Saturday evening is the infamous Dutch Oven Cook-off! Bring your Dutch Oven and your favorite recipe, and prizes will be awarded to the most delicious dishes.  

Sunday evening is our Community Grill & Feast, featuring a BYOM (bring your own meat) taco and burrito bar. Bring your meat of choice to be grilled, and we'll provide the rest.

Meet at Office in Sparks, NV

Join us for a weekend full of epic views, metal hauling, and great food as we head into High Rock Canyon and remove an old development. We will be some of the first people entering the canyon on opening weekend following seasonal closures so opportunities for wildlife viewing will be abundant. Work will involve hiking into the backcountry of High Rock Canyon and hauling out materials left over from a non-functioning development. Help us keep the canyon as wild as it was when John C. Fremont first mapped it in 1843.

For more information please contact Richie at richie@nevadawilderness.org or call the office at 775-324-7667.
