Nevada, This Is YOUR Backyard
If you love the outdoors, you belong in Nevada! Nevada is truly unique in having environments that provide year round outdoor and wilderness recreational opportunities offering an enriching quality of life both personally and professionally.
Few locales provide the diversity of environments, from above tree line alpine, to below sea level deserts, just minutes from urban centers. Yet these recreational gems are unknown to the majority of residents and visitors alike. Did you know that our communities in Southern Nevada are linked by over 1,000 miles of urban trails? These trails lead to thousands of acres of community and regional parks in the Las Vegas valley encircled by over 7.5 million acres of public lands. From deserts and lakes to wildlife and wildflower blooms, the area is rich in resources to discover, explore and connect to invigorating recreational opportunities.
Supporting Outside Las Vegas means supporting education, volunteerism, outreach and collaborative programs that enrich this community. It means helping to improve the quality of life for Nevadans by fully utilizing vast resources and unique natural landscapes, and world-class outdoor recreational opportunities. Your support serves as a reminder to our neighboring states and tens of millions of tourists that Nevada is an untapped resource for great adventures and inspiring outdoors experiences. We ask for your support because Nevada’s core deficiencies are undeniable:
- Nevada has an overarching need for basic education and workforce training for its citizens in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)
- Diversification of Nevada’s economy is urgent to protect us from future financial crisis
- Green infrastructure (the social, economic, and environmental health of our surroundings) is critical to prevent debilitating impacts on public lands
- 31% of Nevadan kindergarteners are known to be overweight or obese
Your financial, volunteer and in-kind contribution provides the support necessary to plan and execute education programs and community events that are dedicated to enhancing the lives of all Nevadans. All while promoting the continued care and revitalization of the treasured outdoor places that we all love. Get Outdoors Nevada is here to connect you to your piece of nature.
