As promised in my blog post Re-Ignite Your Goals with a Sense of Purpose, I will spotlight local community non-profits and what opportunities they have available for volunteers. Today, I would like to introduce an organization that is on the front line taking care of wild lands in Southern Nevada so we may enjoy them now and in the future.
Friends of Nevada Wilderness is dedicated to preserving all qualified Nevada public lands as wilderness, protecting all present and potential wilderness from ongoing threats, educating the public about the values of and need for wilderness, and improving the management and restoration of wild lands.

I have personally volunteered with this outstanding organization for many years. Jose and his team are enthusiastic and always very thankful for volunteer efforts. Each event offers an educational opportunity. You will find volunteering with Friends of Nevada Wilderness a rewarding and engaging experience whether you are a single volunteer, family, or organization.
