Fall Is For The Birds!
Birding in Southern Nevada is the perfect activity for October after you support our Hospital at Art in the Park, October 4 and 5! Clark County Nature Preserve, east of Boulder Highway on Tropicana, is perfect for a bike ride or giving Bowser a run, and accessible through the Duck Creek Trail entrance.

Neat Nevada Notes: A bit over 100 miles north and slightly east of Reno/Sparks on SR 447 off Interstate 80, Gerlach is best known these days as gateway to Burning Man, a week long experience culminating on Labor Day. Burning Man has been described as being “un-describable” unless you have been there! burningman.com has the scoop. In Washoe County, Gerlach was named for Louis Gerlach’s Land and Cattle Company in 1900. A Railroad community, Gerlach was established by the Western Pacific Railway, and is currently home to nearly 500 residents at an elevation of 3951'. A few years ago Gerlach’s Planet X Pottery attended our Art in the Park. Visit www.gerlach.travelnevada.com for more information.
