Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness as we host our eighth annual Wilderness Wingding event to celebrate you - our amazing supporters! Whether you volunteered in the office or in the field, signed a petition to help protect more wilderness for Nevada, or donated to support our programs, this event is to thank you for all of your hard work and passion for Nevada's wild lands. The evening will also mark our end-of-year celebration for our 30th anniversary as an organization and the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act.

Get ready for live music from local artists, delicious food, beer & wine, and a silent auction and raffle. This event is free and open to the public so please feel free to bring your friends and family. Suggested donation is $10. Awards ceremony will begin at 6pm.

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act, this year's theme is the wild 60's! Guests are encouraged to wear their best 60's costume to the event.

Muddy Mountains Wilderness


Join us for a weekend of stewardship in Hidden Valley! Hidden Valley is one of the gems of southern Nevada, located in the Muddy Mountains Wilderness. We'll be installing wooden posts to designate a parking area for Arch Trail, as well as signs directing people to the proper trailhead. This is critical to protecting the area and improving access for visitors...all while assisting in sustainable recreation. 

Gourmet camp dinner on us...including our famous dutch oven upside-down pineapple cake! 

The backcountry dirt roads require a 4x4/AWD vehicle to get to the project site (Ex. Subaru Outback, 4x4 truck/suv, etc.)

Join us to experience an awesome place and give back!

What you'll need

Warm's going to be chilly (several warm layers, beanie, etc.). Bring warm sleeping bags, your tent, and anything  you'll need to make camp for a night and stay warm. Also pack breakfast and lunch for Saturday, and a breakfast and lunch for Sunday. Bring eating utensils (Bowl, plate, spoon, mug, etc.) Also bring a water bottle to refill.

What we'll have

We will provide Saturday's dinner, morning coffee/hot water, drinking water, and all the tools and protective equipment you'll need to help us make a difference!
