Ecological Restoration in Southern Nevada
Join friends for our November installment of the Wild Speaker Series. Jonathan "JJ" Smith, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), will give us insight into restoration projects that improve and maintain our public lands in southern Nevada under BLM management. The projects include waterways like the Virgin and Muddy Rivers and help protect the habitats of threaten species like the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher. Find out more about BLM lands and the restorative work that goes into keeping public lands like Gold Butte National Monument accessible as well as how you can volunteer on the ground.
Jonathan "JJ" Smith is the Restoration Project Manager for the Bureau of Land Management's Las Vegas office. Nevada contains forty-eight million acres of public land, amounting to 63% of the state, managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Founded in 1812, the BLM's mission is to sustain health, diversity and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.
We will see you there!
Every first Thursday of the month, Friends of Nevada Wilderness hosts a local environmental expert at REI Boca Park in their Community Room. Doors open at 6:45 giving you enough time to socialize and grab a snack before the presentation begins at 7 pm.
