Need Free Spring Break Plans?

From the Las Vegas Review Journal, February 9, 2024 - Every year, spring break offers Southern Nevada college students a brief respite from the strict routine of school.
Some opt to spend it on vacation somewhere else or relaxing at home. That won’t be the case for a set of students and young adults who will camp in the Desert National Wildlife Refuge and restore trails, clean up trash and learn about the diverse and delicate desert ecosystems that make up the Silver State.

Friends of Nevada Wilderness, which works to preserve the state’s public lands, has hosted between 10 and 20 people on public lands during different school breaks for nearly a decade. It’s also completely free thanks to funding from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, with meals, gear and travel to and from UNLV included.
