Thank you to all our great volunteers
As the year comes to a close, I want to wish you all a Happy Holiday
and give you my heartfelt thanks for your commitment to Nevada’s wild places. Hats (or helmets)
off to our incredible volunteers and all they accomplished on-the-ground this year making our
special places even better and more wild. We couldn’t do this without your gifts of time,
money and passion. On December 12th, we celebrated our volunteers and our wild places at
the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno. Let the photos tell the story. (Thank you Kurt Kuznicki
for the photos.)
