School closures don't mean we can’t learn, and social distancing doesn’t mean we can’t explore the outdoors and our parks—it just means we have to do it a little differently!

So we're bringing the outdoors and science exploration to you with our brand new YouTube channel. Join our education team for fun science lessons, experiments, crafts, and more!

Trout Week

This spring, the Parks Foundation participated in the Nevada Department of Wildlife's Trout in the Classroom Program! NDOW provided us with a tank habitat and Rainbow Trout eggs that we were able to observe as they developed, hatched, grew, and eventually were released! So use the resources and videos below to learn about all things trout!
