A message from NOS Executive Director - Urgent Help Needed

Dear Friends,

Coronavirus Consequence – Emergency Funds Needed Now

Due to the current state of affairs and preexisting cuts to traditionally reliable funding sources this year, the future of Nevada Outdoor School is in turmoil and we are facing the real and unfortunate reality of shutting down. We need community support through monetary donations now to keep our doors open and ensure the future of Nevada Outdoor School. 

Nevada Outdoor School programs provide real and important value to the communities we serve, providing experiential outdoor education to our local youth. We are working hard right now to help package food relief to families in need in our communities, and ensuring our students are well fed and taken care of. While we have to practice social distancing, this does not mean the education has to stop. We can continue to help our youth, teachers and parents by providing them outdoor education through online videos and lessons. This will help our youth be able to utilize this time to slow down, better themselves, and appreciate and care for our natural world.  

Your action is needed now for the future of our organization and outdoor education in Nevada.  Your monetary gift of any size will help us continue to serve, support, and educate our students.

I wish you and yours well during this unfortunate and turbulent time.  Remember the outdoors is still a safe place to visit and recreate, but we must act responsibly and practice social distancing while doing so.

Kind regards,

Melanie Erquiaga
Melanie Erquiaga, Executive Director
