Join Friends of Nevada Wilderness for a day of hiking and spring monitoring in Mt. Charleston!! This will be a great way to meet fellow spring monitoring volunteers or to get a first glimpse at Friends' Spring Monitoring program in Southern Nevada. In a nutshell, this citizen science program involves hiking to springs and measuring things such as water quality and flow rate.
This will involve a rigorous off-trail hike on uneven terrain for at least 2 miles. Please bring ample water and a lunch, and plan for cold weather by wearing layers. The spring(s) we visit will depend on weather and what still needs to be monitored, so exact details will be sent out in the week leading up to the event.
