Mt. Rose Wilderness - Michael S. Thompson Trailhead
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.

Little High Rock Canyon Wilderness
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 September 22nd and drive north, through Gerlach, to our camp/work site. RSVP Below!
Project is subject to change and/or cancellation due to weather, fire, etc. We will let you know if anything changes.

Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon Emigrant Trails NCA
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.
Along with our partners, Friends of Black Rock-High Rock and Nevada Outdoor School, we will be hosting a Dutch Oven Cook-Off! Time to hone your recipes.
Check back periodically for updates and plan for a great weekend in the National Conservation Area.
