    Join us for a weekend deep in the Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area restoring habitat and enjoying the views. There will be great food, coffee, stunning sunrises, stars, and a wee bit of work on this action packed weekend. A great opportunity to get out of town and enjoy some fresh air.

    We plan to leave the office around 2 pm and head North to High Rock Lake. We will camp in the vicinity of the opening to Little High Rock Canyon. Work will be done in the area on Saturday the 5th. We will provide a Dutch Oven dinner on Saturday as well as both breakfasts.

    Help better Pronghorn Antelope habitat. Enjoy a weekend in the high desert. You will have the chance to remove an old barbed wire fence, no longer needed, and continue to put back together the fragmented habitat of the Antelope. We plan to camp just outside the Wilderness and near the work site.

    We plan to depart from the Reno office around 2 pm on August 18th and drive north, through Gerlach, to our camp/work site. It'll be just after the annual Perseid's Meteor Shower peaks and the skies are guaranteed to be dark and great for viewing as the moon will be waning. RSVP Below!

  • Mt. Rose Wilderness Invasive Weed Monitoring #4

    Wednesday, August 23, 2017 at 07:00 AM
    Mt. Rose Wilderness - Michael S. Thompson Trailhead

     13537681_10206615214687485_3991714199399184695_n.jpg

    This year we decided to monitor the invasive weed populations later in the summer. This will help us identify how many are slipping past the blades of our shovels and how this past winter affected populations.

    Join us for a day of hiking on and off trail throughout the north portion of Mt. Rose Wilderness. We will hike to known weed locations and assess how they are doing. Hopefully, we won't find any new ones.

     

    This is a great way to get a more in depth knowledge of Noxious Weeds and explore rarely seen areas of Mt. Rose Wilderness.

     

    We plan to start early to beat the summer heat. Trip details are subject to change. If you have further questions, contact us here at the office, 775-324-7667.

    Love your Public Lands? Join us for a weekend of giving back to the land! Help us help the BLM restore critical Desert Dace Habitat in Soldier Meadows.

     

    Similar to last year, but different all the while we will focus on improving habitat for the Desert Dace. The exact work has yet to be determined.
