The Friends of Nevada Wilderness and the Nevada Department of Wildlife will be conducting restoration in the form of a Native Planting Event to establish native perennials following a wildfire and we could still use more helping hands.
Activities will center in an area burned by wildfire in the Mormon Mountains of Lincoln county. All materials and tools will be provided, but volunteers are responsible for bringing personal gear (e.g., work gloves, sturdy boots, sunglasses, sunscreen, food, water, etc.). Please check the weather conditions prior to the event and come prepared.
We will be at various sites within the Mormon Mountains on Saturday October 8, 15, 22, and 29. Please arrive at the restoration site at 9:00 a.m. for volunteer registration and a safety briefing.
The event will end around 1:00 pm. You are welcome to camp the night before. For additional information or questions about camping, please contact Matt Flores 702-290-5262 firstname.lastname@example.org.
A high clearance vehicle is required to reach the restoration site which is located along Carp-Elgin Road, approximately and hour and a half from Las Vegas.
