Summer of Sheldon 2011

Friends of Nevada Wilderness is offering three opportunities to get out in the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge and help Nevada's pronghorn antelope this summer! Our Sheldon Rendezvous has been so successful in the past, we've decided to triple it this year!

June 24-26, 2011

Volunteers will be pulling barbed wire fence out that obstructs pronghorn antelope migratory routes and water access under the direction of the US Fish and Wildlife Service. On Saturday evening, there will be a Dutch oven entree and volunteer potluck - Friends of Nevada Wilderness will provide the main dishes, just bring a side or dessert to share!

The Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge encompasses over 570,000 acres of high desert sagebrush-steppe ecosystem and boasts wandering herds of pronghorn antelope and scatterd bands of bighorn sheep along with a variety of bird and butterfly species.

Call 775 324-7667 to reserve your spot - space is limited, so call today!
