Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness for a half day of hiking and spring monitoring in Mt. Charleston! This will be a great way to meet fellow spring monitoring volunteers or to get a first glimpse at Friends' Spring Monitoring program in Southern Nevada. In a nutshell, this citizen science program involves hiking to springs and measuring things such as water quality and flow rate.
This will involve a rigorous off-trail hike on uneven terrain for at least 2 miles. The spring(s) we visit will depend on weather and what still needs to be monitored, so exact details will be sent out in the week leading up to the event.
