Nevada Conservation Advocates Mark 4th Annual Public Lands Day with Virtual Celebration

LAS VEGAS, NV – Nevada’s environmental leaders, activists, and organizations are gathering virtually for their 4th annual Nevada Public Lands Day celebration. Elected officials will commemorate the day by welcoming attendees to the event, and stressing the importance of safely exploring Nevada’s outdoor spaces while social distancing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The day’s program will be hosted by Institute for a Progressive Nevada, and includes a hiking special from Nevada Conservation League with Senate Majority Leader Nicole Cannizzaro, a Spanish outdoor segment from Chispa Nevada, an educational segment on the Desert National Wildlife Refuge from Friends of Nevada Wilderness, presentations from Northern Nevada, and more! It also will have remarks from local, state, and federal officials, a day-long virtual scavenger hunt with prizes, as well as special appearances from the Nevada Public Lands Day icon, Silver the Bighorn Sheep – all from the comfort of viewers’ living rooms! Viewers will also be invited to an After Party to connect with participating organizations on public lands related issues.
