We're teaming up with the Sierra Club for a weekend of stewardship in the Desert National Wildlife Refuge! The Desert Refuge, on the northern edge of Las Vegas, is the largest National Wildlife Refuge in the lower 48 and is home to one of Nevada's largest bighorn sheep populations. Gass Peak Trail leads hikers to the highest point of the Las Vegas Range and 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. This is critical to protecting the area and improving access for visitors... all while assisting in sustainable recreation! Consider joining us for a campout after the project.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and long pants.
- Bring a water bottle, sunscreen, lunch, and snacks for yourself.
- If you're camping out make sure to bring warm clothes, a warm sleeping bag, your tent, and anything you'll need to make camp for a night and stay warm. Also pack dinner for Saturday and breakfast for Sunday.
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/hot water, tea, and oatmeal with all the fixings.
