WASP seed collection, National Park Service

Come enjoy a day at the lake while helping the Lake Mead Nursery collect native seeds around the park. Seeds will be collected from plants that are in current seeding phases by different methods including hand picking and the use of rackets and buckets. The seeds will be used in various projects around the park to replant disturbed areas to ensure that native plants establish themselves before invasive species move in. Be part of this great project and become a Nevada native plant steward.

Pay It Forward Day

Thursday, April 29, is international Pay It Forward Day and we would love for you to be a part of this worldwide day of goodwill.

Currently, there are people from 21 countries who will be participating and we hope to encourage over 1 million people to participate in some act of kindness on Pay It Forward Day.

The movie Pay It Forward was filmed in Las Vegas and was released into theaters 10 years ago (2000), which makes this a big anniversary celebration for the altruistic concept.
