Show you're appreciation for Wilderness in honor the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act.
Friends of Nevada Wilderness is thrilled to celebrate 50 years of Wilderness protection. The Southern Nevada Team is also excited to spend this milestone with volunteers on the South Loop trail improving the first mile of trail. Many local Nevadans know about the damage that was done in last year's Carpenter 1 fire. The nearly 28,000 acre fire engulfed almost all of the South Loop trail leaving dangerously burned ancient Bristlecone pine trees. Because of the potential hazards from these trees and the critical habitat for the recently listed endangered Mt. Charleston Blue butterfly the South Loop trail has been closed for over a year. It remains closed.
The Forest Service has granted Friends of Nevada Wilderness and our volunteers exclusive entry to this popular trail head on the Anniversary of the Wilderness Act to maintain the trail and restore the surrounding area. Trail maintenance will be done within the first mile of the trail. If you would like to join us please RSVP.
Directly after this stewardship project Friends of Nevada Wilderness is hosting a potluck picnic party and speaker at the trail head. For more details on this special event click here.
