Little Fish Valley - Table Mountain Wilderness
Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness for a weekend in lovely Central Nevada. We are partnering with the USFS to help them remove an old barbed wire fence that is no longer needed, and are hoping to split our crew and have some folks remove Pinyon Juniper encroachment into the valley to improve sage grouse habitat.
It will be enjoyable fall weekend with cold nights and warm days, perfect for enjoying Wild Nevada and giving back. Pulling fence is challenging, yet extremely rewarding work. Learn how to use a t-post puller, fence pliers, and roll up barbed wire.
We plan to depart the office in the early afternoon of October 20th, if you any questions regarding this project, don't hesitate to contact us.
Project is subject to change and/or cancellation due to weather, fire, etc. We will let you know if anything changes.

Join us for a morning spent putting up a kiosk near South McCullough Wilderness and cleaning up a popular destination, McClanahan Spring. This site is next to the Jean dry lake bed and serves as a gateway to South McCullough Wilderness. South McCullough encompasses ancient metamorphic mountains that appear soft from a distance, but are rocky and rough upon closer inspection. Your time will be well spent cleaning up the area to improve habitat and encourage responsible recreation!
All you'll need to bring is a water bottle, sunscreen, and snacks for yourself.

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
Join the Friends of Nevada Wilderness for a beautiful autumn day restoring wilderness landscapes along Bridge Mountain Trail. Due to scheduling adjustments, we have changed the location of the Lovell Canyon project to the Bridge Mountain Trail. We will be working to brush the trail and identify trail work needs.
Bridge Mountain Trail is in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area and requires a high-clearance vehicle to access. We will have a Jeep with seating for three volunteers. If you are interested in following in your own high-clearance vehicle or joining our carpool, please let me know via email or phone call.
We plan to meet at the RRCNCA Visitor Center at 7am. Be sure to RSVP below and contact Nicholas Scritchfield with any questions or for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or (715) 220-7974.
