Event Details

Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness for the first Northern Nevada field volunteer opportunity of 2011! The trip will take place in the Black Rock Desert NCA at Soldier Meadows.

Volunteers will have a variety of projects to choose from including: repair of the Smallwoods cabin, general campsite cleanup and maintenance, trespass rehabilitation, and an opportunity for a small group to help with weed eradication.

We'll caravan from the Friends office, leaving Friday afternoon about 2pm (seats may be available), stopping for dinner at Brunos in Gerlach on our way to camp. Friends will provide continental breakfast with French-press coffee Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as dinner Saturday night. Please bring your own snacks and lunch.

We'll work Saturday, then drive back on Sunday, with time for a hike along the way, if people are interested.

To volunteer for the kick-off project of the Northern Nevada field season, please contact Brian Beffort at (775) 324-7667, or click here to email Brian.
