11th Annual Wilderness Wingding

Event Dates and Times

Reno, Nevada
Friends of Nevada Wilderness is set to host the conservation event of the season at the California Building in Idlewild Park on Friday, December 8th, for their eleventh annual Wilderness Wingding celebration.

The Wilderness Wingding is Friends’ chance to say thank you for all the great work accomplished by our volunteers, partners, and supporters in 2017. We’ve had a busy field season this year with 650 new and returning volunteers who donated $191,247 of in-kind labor, working diligently to protect and preserve America’s public lands in Nevada.

This community event is open to the public and the evening will provide a light dinner and refreshments, live music, great raffle prizes, a silent auction, and plenty of joy and merriment. There will also be an awards ceremony honoring the exceptional contributions made by this year’s outstanding volunteers, agency partners, and business partners.
