Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness for a week of conservation, recreation, and exploration at Walking Box Ranch!
Alternative Spring 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 the historic Walking Box Ranch near Searchlight, Nevada, in the Avi Kwa Ame National Monument.
We will camp under the stars among the ancient Joshua Trees, enjoy visits to nearby areas like Wee Thump Wilderness - home to some of the tallest and oldest Joshua Trees on Earth, Spirit Mountain Wilderness, Lake Mohave, and more!
Participants will gain hands on experience in conservation as we improve the grounds at Walking Box Ranch, remove invasive weeds, clean-up litter in Lake Mead National Recreation Area, and meet with local experts in the outdoors community.
Friends of Nevada Wilderness provides tent, sleeping bag, and other necessary gear 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!

Our Alternative Breaks are funded by the Southern Nevada Agency Partnership (SNAP). Friends of Nevada Wilderness is proud to partner with the Federal public lands agencies that make up SNAP and manage more than 10 million acres of public lands and water in Southern Nevada to provide conservation and recreational opportunities. SNAP's “Engaging Communities through Stewardship” project is delivering a continuum of activities, including environmental education programs, stewardship events, and responsible outdoor recreation trainings designed to engage our local community, from childhood into adulthood, in their public lands.
