Cleanup at Sloan

There is nothing like the satisfaction of helping someone or something — especially when one contribution can benefit so many people! Public lands are places that can be enjoyed and appreciated by all. Unfortunately, many of these lands can collect garbage or are illegally used as dumping grounds. You can be a part of the solution — and help the environment, the animals who call the lands home, and the people who appreciate these lands — by joining in on the cleanup. Register through Get Outdoors Nevada.

Stewardship Saturday Cattail Cutting

Removing cattails is an important part of the restoration process as they slow stream flow and promote the existence of exotic crayfish.  These crayfish, among other exotic species, eat and compete with the endangered Ash Meadows Amargosa pupfish.  Overgrown cattails and reeds will be cut along Crystal Springs outflow stream channel.  Warning: you WILL get wet.  Most places the water is knee-deep.  However, in some places may be up to four feet deep.  All participants should be comfortable swimming or wading in water.
