Friends of Nevada Wilderness highlighted the value of outdoor recreation on our public lands at the Nevada Day Parade Saturday in Carson City.
The Friends entry, “Outdoor Recreation is Gold for the Silver State,” featured the UTV decked out with recreation gear and supporters walking the parade route dressed for their favorite outdoor activity.
The new Nevada Outdoor Business Coalition joined us to highlight the contributions of outdoor recreation to the Nevada economy.
Announcers along the parade route broadcast the numbers; outdoor recreation creates 87,000 jobs in Nevada, more than $4 billion in wages and over $1 billion in state and local tax revenue, all because so much of Nevada is owned by and open to us all.
It was a beautiful day for a parade and to spread the word about the value of our treasured public lands.
