National Public Lands Day is September 26 and we’re celebrating for many reasons – primarily because Nevada is incredibly rich in public lands that provide us endless opportunities to seek physical, mental and spiritual renewal in the great outdoors. From the arid valleys of the Desert National Wildlife Refuge to the lake-strewn peaks of the Ruby Mountains, we have much to be grateful for.
A whole host of public and non-profit agencies are getting together for some fun to mark the occasion. We invite you to join the virtual celebration!
We’re thrilled to welcome back a small band of our volunteers, just enough so we can work together safely, to help out with a number of projects on National Public Lands Day. We’ll be working on stewardship projects with the Bureau of Land Management in northern and southern Nevada to help manage YOUR public lands and keep them accessible for all.
Finally, just in time for National Public Lands Day, Friends is pleased to announce the re-opening of the Griffith Peak Trail in the Mt. Charleston Wilderness. Read all about it here.
