Volunteers will restore approximately .75 miles of user created routes adjacent to the recently opened Sloan Canyon access road (Nawghaw Poa Road) and visitor contact station.
This event is being organized to remove 1.5 miles of old allotment barbed wire fencing from the landscape. The fence impedes the free movement of wildlife like elk, mule deer, wild horse and other small mammals. This fence also acts as a potential danger that can potentially snare or cut an animal as it tries to move over or under the fence. Removing this fence provides an unobstructed and safer corridor of habitat for fauna to move across the landscape.
The Spring Mountains Visitor Gateway is now a year old and still needs some finishing touches, like places to sit and finished paths to the Mt Charleston Amphitheater! Join us for service work in the morning, and a fun concert in the afternoon. Details:
* Bench installation- volunteers are needed on 8/17 for placing and setting benches, and 8/24 for sanding and staining
* Paver installation- volunteers are needed on 8/24 for installing pavers
