Alternative Spring Break 2024 - At the Lake!

Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness for a week of conservation, recreation, and exploration at Lake Mead National Recreation Area!

Alternative Spring Break is a 4-day long service-learning experience designed for college students and young adults (18-39).  This year we will be camping and stewarding at Lake Mead National Recreation Area!

We will camp by the lake at Boulder Beach Campground and will spend the week doing restoration projects like pulling invasive plants, collecting native seeds, and visiting an archaeological site!

Participants will get the chance to meet with local environmental experts, learn to camp, and get the chance to experience public lands stewardship in a way not many people get to experience!

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.  To learn more and get involved visit
