August Meeting

AUGUST 18! Mark the date down! It’s the next meeting of the Friends of Nevada State Museum Las Vegas. Our speaker will be Rosa Prasser from the Southern Nevada Conservancy. Rosa is a Program Manager and Interpretive Naturalist for the Conservancy and is ready to tell us all about the Spring Mountains. A teaser for Rosa’s discussion with us is “As people go about their days in the Las Vegas Valley, the silhouette of the Spring Mountains looms in the background. This mountain range, pushed up from the valley floor thousands of years ago, hosts immense diversity in a place also known as the island in the sky.”

Come join us for pictorial and verbal discussion, and go away better educated than ever about the natural history of our area.

The Friends meeting is held in the Nevada State Museum on the third Thursday of the month (August 18). The meeting starts at 2:30 pm, but doors open at 2 pm for signup and fellowship. The museum and store are open after the meeting for Friends browsing. Museum staff are also available for questions and input.
