Lovell Canyon Clean-up

We had a great volunteer project with a awesome group of folks coming out to the Spring Mountains NRA to make a difference. Over thirty folks turned out to clean-up of the main portal to the Rainbow Mountain & La Madre Wilderness. We then divided up into groups and some folks led by board members John & Hermi Hiatt hiked a mile in the Rainbow Wilderness to clean-up a camping area. The other Wilderness volunteers went up the Lovell Canyon road to the La Madre Wilderness and cleaned up a campsite and a shooter area inside Wilderness. The volunteers worked very hard and once again got a lot done and had fun while doing it. The day came to a close with a spirited snowball fight leaded by Ryan with the Circle K International Service Club with UNLV...Go CKI Rebels! Special thanks to everyone who gave up their Saturday for the greater good of the Rainbow Mountain and La Madre Wilderness Areas. Special thanks to the Mt Charleston Licence Plate Program, National Forest Foundation. REI and the Nevada Community Foundation for making this day possible through their support of this program.
