    Desert National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center in Las Vegas, NV

    Hello, fellow fans of Wilderness. Friends cordially invites you to the Wahoo for Wilderness, our southern Nevada annual kickoff for the upcoming Volunteer/Stewardship season. Let's celebrate all of the great work accomplished in 2018 and get ready for an even more awesome 2019 season. We want to Thank YOU - whether you volunteered on a project, signed a petition, or became a member - we could not have accomplished as much as we did without you! The Wahoo for Wilderness is open to the public, so grab a friend and join us!

    Friends could not accomplish our work without the help of hundreds of dedicated volunteers and supporters.  Help us celebrate and thank an extra special handful of rockstar supporters!  Please join us for an afternoon filled with merriment and friends.  And of course, we'll have a fun Wilderness trivia game to play.

    Join us at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center on February 23rd from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this potluck style event.  We'll bring the main course and a dutch oven dessert.  Bring your favorite side dish, dessert, or an entry for the trail mix contest.

    Please RSVP so we can plan accordingly.  If you have questions or concerns give us a call at our office (702) 515-5417.

    See you there!

    Goldstrike Canyon employees are joining us once again to take care of Nevada's wild lands!  This time we're heading to Goldstrike Canyon to clean up the trail.  Zappos was Friends' 2018 Corporate Partner of the Year and has been a longtime, incredible supporter of Friends.  We're thrilled to be teaming up again in 2019!
