During January 2024, we were able to create, educate, and get individuals outside!
Just one day after we returned from Christmas Break we jumped back into programming and community skills events! AmeriCorps members, William Neff and Sedric Zimmerman, helped community members build their own eco-friendly do-it-yourself bird feeder! In total we had 12 participants participate.
In Elko on January 12th we had a change of plans and instead of going up to the Powerhouse picnic area we met everyone at the Ruby Dome Ranch and took a snowshoe trek from there! Even though it was a little cold and windy, all participants were able to make it to the Lamoille Powerhouse picnic area for pictures to preserve their memories of the experience.
January 19th was our first road show of the year. AmeriCorps member, Noah Clymens, traveled to the Reno Convention Center to attend the Youth Wildlife Conservation Experience. We were able to reach about 650 people throughout the weekend. Participants both children and adults spun the wheel of ethics and were quizzed about outdoor knowledge.
