  • Wild Speaker Series 1 RSVP

    Thursday, September 07, 2017 at 06:45 PM
    REI - Boca Park in Las Vegas, NV

     

    Jose Witt is the Southern Nevada Director for Friends of Nevada Wilderness and an avid backpacker with extensive knowledge of Nevada's public lands. On September 7th, he'll give a presentation titled, Friends' Favorite Hikes in Nevada.  

    Nevada is one of the few places that can still be considered the "Wild West". With over 60 wilderness areas located in our state, before adventurers run out of potential places to visit, they may be overwhelmed on exactly where to start. Don't worry, Jose will lay out a number of these beautiful remote (and not so remote) areas detailing the landscape, wildlife, trails and recreation options each has to offer. Get ready for an interactive chat about Wild Nevada and how you can get out and enjoy these pristine areas. 

    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. Please join us at REI Boca Park every first Thursday for a new speaker every month!

    National Public Lands Day in Gold Butte National Monument!

    Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness, Friends of Gold Butte, and the Bureau of Land Management as we celebrate something we all share: public lands!  From our neighborhood parks or beaches to our nation’s awe-inspiring national monuments, public lands are the places where we live, learn, play, exercise, and relax. In fact, over 30% of America’s land is public land.  Now it’s your turn to give back!

    We'll meet in the morning, then split into teams to accomplish various projects throughout Gold Butte.  We'll rehabilitate fragile desert habitat, install signs for the Gold Butte Backcountry Byway, and re-enforce the boundary of Lime Canyon Wilderness.  All you'll need to bring is a water bottle, lunch, snacks, and sunscreen for yourself.  Plan to wear long pants, a long sleeve shirt, and wear sturdy, close-toed shoes.

    It'll be enjoyable fall weekend with cool 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.
