The Nature Conservancy in Nevada and the Clark County Wetlands Park are working to connect people with Nature.
The Wetlands Park is a beautiful area on the outskirts of Las Vegas that provides lush habitat for over 300 species of plants and animals. It also helps improve the quality of Las Vegas water as it flows from the park back into Lake Mead and the Colorado River watershed.
During the spring, fall and winter months, the Conservancy is collaborating with the Wetlands Park to put on a monthly volunteer event on the second Saturday of each month. These volunteer events revolve around restoring natural habitat and general clean up of this important natural area. Keep an eye out for more information on our fun “Connect with Nature” volunteer and community day at the Clark County Wetlands Park on Saturday, October 11th from 9am – 2pm.
In addition to working together on volunteer events, Conservancy and Wetlands Park staff are sharing ideas and approaches to restoration and conservation work in riparian areas.
