A nice Vegas area day trip. It's not just about growing dates! Take your camera for some out of this world photo ops, and if you are up to it, an easy hike through a small slot canyon. Remember, "easy" is a relative term. Don't hike alone.
Volunteers needed for just about every public parks kind of event: BLM, US Fish & Game, National Parks, US Forest Service. Teach, take pictures, build, clean up, plant seedlings, gather seeds, be a docent, help park cars, bring water!
