National Wildlife Refuge Week at the Pahranagat NWR

We've done some cool projects here in Wild Southern Nevada, but I think this project is one of my favorites. Although all these hardworking folks were from different backgrounds and places from around the world ( Kenya, Tanzania, Panama and of course the USA) we all share the same love and concern for the wild places and wildlife. We planted 600 native plants in an effort to control invasive weeds and got a very cool tour of the refuge by Refuge Manager Chivia Horton.

Special thanks to the awesome volunteers and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Pahranagat NWR Rocks!

Henderson Trails Day Event

We had a very successful day of Wilderness Outreach at the Henderson Nevada National Trails Day Event. We spoke to a lot of folks, signed up some new members, and recruited some more volunteers for the Spring Mountains NRA. We even had the pleasure to pose for a photo with Mohave doesn't get any better than that.
Special thanks to uber volunteer Kathy Ujifusa and board member Hermi Hiatt for giving up their Saturday to make a difference for Southern Nevada Wilderness.

Hoo-rah for Wilderness
