Stewardship begins with the Community

The Bureau of Land Management may manage our public lands, but it's We The People that own it. It's up to us to do the housekeeping needed to keep it maintained and protected for future generations to enjoy and learn from. To that end we organize a growing number of stewardship work days each year with key partners such as the Bureau of Land Management and the City of Henderson. Our signature event each year is National Public Lands Day, and that day is almost here! We'll be organizing a group of 30 or so volunteers to install replacement and new trail signage along Sloan's 601 trail. Join us for a morning of some sweat, lots of fun with outdoors friends, and the satisfaction of contributing to the stewardship of our local public lands. We own them, it's up to us to do the housekeeping. We're starting at 7:30am Saturday, September 30th at the McCullough Hills Trailhead. Contact Ranger Gina at or by phone at 702-515-5355 to register.
