  • Grapevine Canyon Restoration with UNLVolunteers! **PRIVATE**

    Saturday, November 03, 2018 at 08:00 AM
    Bridge Canyon Wilderness

    We're teaming up with UNLVolunteers to restore the web of trails has been proliferating throughout Grapevine Canyon, which are causing erosion and leading hikers along unsafe paths.  Our work is critical to protecting the area and maintaining access for visitors... all while helping preserve America's past!  

    Grapevine Canyon is nestled in the granite mountains of Bridge Canyon Wilderness and is home to one of the more significant petroglyph sites in all of Nevada.  A fresh water spring flows out of the canyon floor in non-drought year, providing life-giving water to a variety of animals and plants, including native Canyon Grape vines that are the namesake of the area.

    This is a private event.  Friends of Nevada Wilderness coordinates private volunteer opportunities for businesses and other organizations.  It's a great way to give back to the community and increase the community and camaraderie of your team.  If you'd like to coordinate a similar event for your group, contact us at (702) 515-5417.

  • Arch Trail Repair in Muddy Mountains Wilderness! 3 RSVPs

    Saturday, November 10, 2018 at 07:00 AM through November 11, 2018
    Muddy Mountains Wilderness

    Spend your weekend repairing Arch Trail, which leads hikers over a knobby sandstone ridgeline and down into Hidden Valley, ultimately reaching a large sandstone arch.  We'll be repairing parts of the trail that are eroding and better defining the trail through Hidden Valley.  This is critical to protecting the area and improving access for visitors.  Join us to experience an awesome place and give back!

    We'll be camping at the trailhead on Saturday night - including a delicious dutch oven dessert!  

    This project involves a round-trip hike of up to 8 miles.  The backcountry dirt roads require a 4x4/AWD vehicle to get to the project site.  We'll have some seats available for folks to carpool with us & can save you a seat.


    WHAT YOU'LL NEED:  Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and long pants.  Bring a water bottle, sunscreen, lunches, snacks, & dinner for yourself.  Bring warm clothes, a sleeping bag, tent, and anything you'll need to make camp for a night and stay warm.

    WHAT WE'LL HAVE:  Plenty of drinking water, hard hats, protective gear, and all the tools you'll need to help us make a difference!  A delicious dutch oven dessert for Saturday night!  Sunday morning coffee, tea, & oatmeal with all the fixings.
