National Family Day on Moapa Valley National Wildlife Refuge


Volunteers will assist Refuge staff in the restoration of disturbed landscape. The planting of native species is an important part of the restoration process as native plants compete against exotic species, stabilize disturbed soils, and provide habitat for wildlife.With this planting event, the refuge hopes to re-create and restore upland habitat for a variety of the natural local species. Enjoy planting both small and 5-gallon containers of grasses, shrubs and trees. Individuals need to be in good physical condition as planting requires bending, kneeling, and getting dirty. Plan to be outside in cool, sunny conditions with no shade - a hat and sunscreen are recommended.Water, snacks, (adult-sized) gloves, and a great time will be provided for all who attend! You may bring your own shovel or garden trowel, or we will provide on for you. Kids should bring their own gloves.Audience: Suitable for adults. Must be at least 12 years old. If volunteer is under 18, they must be accompanied by a parent at all times.Location: Moapa Valley National Wildlife RefugeAgency: USFWSVolunteer Work Type: RestorationRegister at
