Par-Tee With Nevada Outdoor School at the 2nd Annual Fire and Ice Charity Golf Scramble!
Come have a ball with Nevada Outdoor School (NOS) on Saturday, May 21st at their 2nd Annual Fire and Ice Charity Golf Scramble! This un-fore-gettable experience will start at 8am at the Spring Creek Golf Course. Don’t miss this tee-rific opportunity to support outdoor education in Elko County and across rural northern Nevada!
Nevada Outdoor School (NOS) inspires exploration of the natural world, responsible stewardship of our habitat and dedication to community. NOS is all about getting people outside, deepening their connection to, understanding of and respect for the natural world. Through a variety of youth, training and healthy community focused programs, NOS provides opportunities for people of all ages to increase their “Time Spent Outdoors”. You might see NOS leading outdoor learning experiences for students, facilitating exploration-based summer camps, hosting community hikes and nature programs, or teaching outdoor skill workshops (just to name a few)! NOS officially opened their Elko office in 2016 but has been working in and serving the Elko community for over 10 years! Although mostly grant funded, as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, NOS works hard to raise the funds needed to support all their great programs through a variety of sources. Annual fundraisers like the upcoming Fire and Ice Charity Golf Scramble provide opportunities for the public to show their support for NOS and help raise needed funds. Are you interested in supporting outdoor experiences in northern Nevada and programs that help keep our recreation areas clean and safe for everyone to enjoy? There are several ways you can help!
