February 1: Wild Speaker Series - Join us as we welcome Go Mt. Charleston’s Jennifer Humphreys (Interpretive Naturalist) and Dion Nicolas (Program Coordinator) for a presentation about Mt. Charleston’s recreational areas, volunteer opportunities and how you can be better stewards when in the Spring Mountains this winter season.
February 3: Jean Dry Lake Kiosk Construction - Join us at Jean dry lake to help spread the word about responsible recreation! We'll spend the morning building a kiosk at a popular staging area just outside of Jean, NV. It will include a map of the area, Tread Lightly information, and interpretation about plants and animals. Afterwards, you can also join us at the Tread Lightly trailer for cold drinks and food off the grill (see below)!
February 3: Tread Lightly Outreach at Jean Lake - Join us at Jean dry lake to help spread the word about responsible recreation! Find us at the Tread Lightly trailer for cold drinks and food off the grill. We’ll talk to folks that stop by about great places to explore, how to minimize your impact when playing in the outdoors, and how to get involved. Spend the whole day or stop by to say hello! You can also join us earlier in the morning to install a kiosk (see above).
February 10: South McCullough Wilderness Barrier Project - Join the Friends of Nevada Wilderness for a fun-filled day protecting wild Nevada through a wilderness barrier project. We'll be heading to South McCullough Wilderness to install post and cable barriers along the boundary, preventing future wilderness incursions and protecting the vast array of species that call this wild place home.
February 11: Muddy Mountains Wilderness Trailwork - Join us for a day of trailwork in Muddy Mountains Wilderness! We'll improve the Arch Trail, which leads hikers over a knobby red rock ridgeline and down into Hidden Valley, ultimately reaching a large sandstone arch. Hidden Valley is one of the gems of the Mojave and a wonderful place to take in the grandeur of wilderness.
February 17: Help Establish Gass Peak Trail - We're teaming up with the Sierra Club for a weekend of stewardship in the Desert National Wildlife Refuge! Gass Peak Trail leads hikers to the highest point of the Las Vegas Range and provides striking views: the city lights of Las Vegas to the south and a vast wilderness to the north. We'll be installing wooden posts to define a parking area of Gass Peak Trail, as well as restoring the old roads behind the parking area, guiding people along the proper trail. Consider joining us for a campout after the project!
