Reflections on AmeriCorps Service - Nevada Outdoor School

When I joined Nevada Outdoor School as a Outdoor Ethics Specialist, I didn’t know I would enjoy it this much. I came into my position as already knowing a lot about the outdoors but I’m still learning new things every day. In my position we travel around the state of Nevada and teach people how to recreate the outdoors by practicing Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly. Just being with NOS for these couple months I’ve become more comfortable with public speaking.  

I enjoy going on the road shows and reaching out to the kids and adults. During these road shows we have a wheel of ethics that the kids can spin. I then ask them a question about the outdoors. Sometimes they know the answers but most of the time they are learning something new. It’s cool knowing that I taught them something that they will remember. I love spending my time outdoors and it’s nice to reach out and get other people to enjoy the outdoors like I do. 

I’m very excited to severe as an AmeriCorps Member with Nevada Outdoor School and continue to educate people about the outdoors.
