2023 Summer Alternative Break at Mount Charleston

Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness for a week of conservation, recreation, and exploration in the Spring Mountains. 

Alternative Summer Break is a 5-day long service-learning experience designed for college students and young adults (18-39).  This year we will be based out of Mahogany Grove Group Camp in the Spring Mountains of Southern Nevada.  

We will camp under the stars among the mountain mahogany, pines, and junipers, enjoy visits to springs and trails, and meet representatives from our partner agencies such as the Forest Service.

Participants will gain hands on experience in conservation as we collect data at springs, maintain and improve trails, and meet with local experts in the outdoors community.

Friends of Nevada Wilderness provides tent, sleeping bag, and necessary personal protection equipment FREE OF CHARGE for ASB participants to borrow.  We also enjoy delicious, gourmet camp meals and desserts each night!

Interested in a career in the outdoors, conservation, recreation, or STEM?  We'll be visited by representatives from our land management and non-profit partners to discuss their career paths and ways to get started on your dream career!
