Discover Nevada State Parks

Nevada State Parks

Nevada residents and visitors are invited to “Discover Nevada State Parks” on Saturday, June 8. Park visitors will receive free day-use admission and free fishing (no license required) at all of Nevada’s State Parks.

This statewide event encourages Nevadans to discover the many exciting and affordable recreation opportunities right in their own backyards. “Nevada’s state parks offer a great diversity of outdoor opportunities,” said State Parks Administrator Robert Mergell. “For example, visitors can explore the slot canyons of Cathedral Gorge, tour a genuine ghost town at Berlin-Ichthyosaur or spend a relaxing afternoon fishing at Wild Horse.”

Discover Nevada State Parks Day is also an opportunity for visitors to take the passport challenge and add a stamp to their passport booklet, or if they don’t have one yet, to pick one up while visiting any state park. Once visitors have their passports stamped at 15 different parks, they earn a free annual day-use pass to all Nevada State Parks.

For more information on the Nevada State Parks Passport Booklet, or to find a list of state parks, please visit parks.nv.gov.

National Radon Action Month

Radon

January is National Radon Action Month.  The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Radon Education Program is offering free short-term radon test kits.

Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless and tasteless.  It rises from the ground, accumulates in homes, and can raise your risk of lung cancer.   A simple three-day test kit will be available at the Douglas County Cooperative Extension offices from January 2nd through February 28th.  They are located at 1325 Waterloo Ln at Gardnerville .
