  • Great Community Clean-up 2019 8 RSVPs

    Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 08:00 AM
    Hunter Creek Trailhead in Reno, NV

    Join us as we partner with Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful for the Annual Great Community Clean-Up! 

    We will meet at the Michael S. Thompson trailhead at 7:30 am, more commonly known as the Hunter Creek Trailhead. We will provide tools and gloves and ask that you come prepared with long pants, layers, and sturdy boots. From the trailhead, we will hike 1-3 miles into the Mt. Rose Wilderness and spend the morning removing invasive Musk Thistle Rosettes.

    Invasive plants upset the delicate balance of nature by reducing wildlife and fish habitat, degrading water quality, increasing soil erosion, and increasing fire danger. Make a difference this year, join us in cleaning-up Mt Rose Wilderness!

    As a thank you for all your hard work, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful will host an afternoon barbecue for all volunteers!

The work is extremely rewarding and you get to experience some beautiful country, all in our backyard wilderness.

  • Santa Rosa Range Fence Removal 3 RSVPs

    Friends of Nevada Wilderness International Headquarters in Sparks, NV

    Improve Wildlife Habitat!

     

    Barbed-wire fences fragment wildlife habitat, trap lowing flying birds like the Sage Grouse, and are impassable to the free-roaming Pronghorn Antelope. Join us in the Santa Rosa Range this spring to remove an unnecessary barbed-wire fence and directly improve wildlife habitat. Your work on this project will leave a lasting impact on one of northern Nevada's most beautiful mountain ranges. 

     

    As always, this project is free! We will be providing breakfast with coffee Saturday and Sunday as well as a big dutch-oven feast on Saturday night. RSVP today!
