2nd Grade Watershed Heroes Field Experiences - Elko

During the month of April we visited over 20 second grade classes for our Watershed Field Trip in the Elko and Spring Creek area! Students learned all about our local Watershed; The Humboldt River Basin. Students also explored how impacts, negative or positive can effect our watershed. Students discussed possible choices to help keep our watershed clean and healthy!

Clean Up, Green Up! - Elko

On Saturday, April 23rd our Elko office joined with the City of Elko for a city wide clean up around town tp celebrate Earth Day! Our NOS Green Team was stationed at the sound wall walk on Water St. Once that area was squeaky clean, we moved our team another location near the city dump that needed some love as well! Our team collected over 15 full size bags of trash from around the city!

Seed to Table Gardening Workshop - Elko

On the afternoon April 15th we partnered with a local gardening expert, Angie Heguy, to host a gardening workshop! Participants learned all about local gardening. Everyone also got to make a newspaper pot and plant a seed to take home to start their own garden! Participants had the choice of different melons, peas and green beans! We hope to see you at our future events.

Certified Interpretive Guide Training

The week of Spring Break some of our Naturalists and staff members completed a training to become Certified Interpretive Guides with the California Trail Interpretive Center! The training included tips and tricks for giving well planned and organized presentations and interpretive programs. In order to become certified, participants were required to give a 10 minute presentation on a topic of their choice. Congrats to all our our now Certified Interpretive Guides!
