To establish and steward a publicly accessible Great Basin wetland habitat where the community can come to learn about and appreciate the importance of our local parks and open spaces.

OUR VISION:

THE STORY

Since the closure of the Rosewood Lakes Golf Course and construction of Veterans Parkway, invasive weed species have proliferated the area.

 

In 2021, the City of Reno agreed to provide Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation with up to a 50-year lease agreement, which enabled the Parks Foundation to launch a multi-year, multi-phase capital campaign to transform the run-down golf course into a high-quality habitat which will include the region's only state-of-the-art nature center.

THE CAMPAIGN

The Acres of Innovation Capital Campaign will raise funds to improve this essential habitat for our region’s native wildlife and provide areas for Washoe County school children and all community members to experience nature and learn about the natural and cultural history of the Truckee Meadows.

You can support our work by making a donation today.

THE PROGRESS

Phase I is underway and will be completed in late 2021. This phase includes the following:

  • Open the 1.30 mile loop trail and the two 1/4 -mile pond loops

  • Design the entrance/site identification signage and visitor center signage

  • Treat and suppress invasive species through the wetland

  • Plant competitive native grass species where invasive upland species have been removed

  • Design wildlife viewing and interpretive amenities for the trail system

  • Establish a pollinator garden

OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE $250,000 BY DECEMBER

Giving today is an investment in the essential spaces of tomorrow
