Hey there! Recent updates from the CLM Team in Carson City. Lately, we’ve been working on a ton of fire monitoring, battling rough roads, enjoying the somewhat cooling temperatures, meeting some new four (and six!) legged friends, and as a team coming together really well in all our planning efforts. Certainly not to forget our seed collecting days, we’ve been all over the place from the Pine Nut Mountains, vast meadows, Indian Creek Reservoir, and all places in between! We have spent a good deal of time this past week planning for a huge weekend at Sand Mountain. It will be a weekend filled with families, friends and friendly campers enjoying the time ATV riding and soaking up all that Sand Mountain has to offer. Our part in this weekend is to spread the word of the conservation work that we do, lead botanical walks, engage the public, and a few nighttime adventures. I’m most excited to hunt for scorpions using a blacklight this weekend (most scorpions will fluoresce under UV light…so cool!). So much planning has gone into the weekend, which hopes to be fun, informative and maybe even a little relaxing. All in all, my time thus far in Nevada has been an uphill climbing roller coaster filled with incredible views, new perspectives and (mostly) smooth sailing. Hope you’ve been enjoying the ride too!
Be Well & Shine On,
Carson City BLM Office
