Great Basin Kids Workshop

The Great Basin Kids Workshop is an annual, half-day field trip established in 2010 with the goal of introducing Nevada’s youth to the ecology of the Great Basin, as well as increasing their knowledge and appreciation of this region in hopes of inspiring lifelong enjoyment of and stewardship to the land.

This free program facilitates safe outdoor experiences that engage students physically, intellectually, and socially with the Great Basin ecosystem and their peers. Participants explore a variety of topics from year to year with ENLC crew and guest experts, learning about Nevada’s native plants, animals, habitat, geology and many other important ecological issues.

School’s out for summer so there will be no tests and no grades—just come prepared to have fun, get a little dirty (and wet) and learn about the animals and plants that make the Great Basin such an interesting and unique place. This workshop is free to participants, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. Call the ENLC office at 775-289-7974 ext. 0# and reserve your child’s spot today.
