Summit Twin Springs--north-western Nevada

Join us and our partners in this beautiful, north-western corner of Nevada.  Volunteers will continue their work to remove an old exclosure from this area and fix the water development.  We will hike out wire and posts from the exclosure that is no longer in use and can cause hazards to wildlife. You need to be a good hiker and able to work at high altitude to attend. The route to the project can be extreme and requires high clearance vehicles. Transportation can be provided. Contact Renee at renee@nevadawilderness or call the office at 775-324-7667 for more information.

Spend your Sunday morning with Friends of Nevada Wilderness on the Bonanza Trail! We will be doing maintenance on the first couple miles of the Bonanza Trail from the Cold Creek trailhead. Regular maintenance is critical for the longevity of trail systems, as well as limited impact recreation. Join us for some cooler weather, beautiful scenery, and meaningful work.

Santa Rosa Mountains-north of Winnemucca

Trail Canyon Stewardship - Part 2! in Mt. Charleston, NV


Escape the valley heat and join Friends of Nevada Wilderness in Mt. Charleston Wilderness! We will be installing some awesome new wilderness signs in replacement of the existing signs that have been vandalized with graffiti and carvings. We will also be building two rows of steps using dry stone masonry techniques. If you've never built steps and walls in a wilderness setting, this is a great place to start. It'll be a great opportunity to learn a new skill and grow a better understanding of the efforts that go into the trails we so love to travel.

Moutain Springs in Rainbow Mountain Wilderness

IMG_7179.JPGJoin us in the beautiful Mountain Springs Area of Rainbow Mountain Wilderness for some wilderness restoration!  We will naturalize an old road bed that is no longer used to prevent confusion and incursion into Rainbow Mountain Wilderness.  The work site sees very few visitors even though it is very close to the town of Mountain Springs, located off of Hwy 160.   Volunteers will spend the morning learning about effective restoration techniques through hands on practice.  Protecting Wilderness character with friends and other like-minded community members is a wonderful way to celebrate National Public Lands Day!
