Leaving No Trace in the Spring Mountains: And Other Volunteering Opportunities
Join Friends as we present our latest outreach program "Leaving No Trace in the Spring Mountains". As thousands of recreationists look to escape the heat of the Las Vegas Valley each summer, Mt Charleston Wilderness and the Spring Mountain National Recreation Area becomes a prime destination. With so many recreationists on the mountain, it is up to us to limit our impact so these wild areas stay open and accessible to the public.
Through a grant paid for by the Mt. Charleston License Plate Program, Friends of Nevada Wilderness will be educating hikers on the trails of Mt. Charleston about the benefits of recreating on the mountain while leaving no trace. Our aim is to keep hikers on trail and not cutting switchbacks. During our chat, we will explain how you can volunteer with us on this project and other projects coming this fall.
**UPDATE: Reid Walcott, Senior Meteorologist NOAA, will present on Monsoons after our initial discussion.**
