Red Rock Audubon participated in Pahrump's annual Earth Day Celebration on April 20th.
Members Carol and RIchard Cantino, Roxy Jones and Dianne Poland, along with Ron Ruhl, shared information with the public on all our organization does to create and maintain habitats for birds and other wildlife. Red Rock Audubon has been the driving force for the transformation of a bankrupt, dying golf course into Discovery Park where the public can walk the paths or visit the pollinator gardens and enjoy being out in nature.
Earth Day celebrants were treated to hayrides courtesy of Great Basin Water Company. They traveled from the old golf course clubhouse where the event was held to the area where RRAS has worked hard to create a habitat where nature can thrive. People saw the over 200 trees that have been planted and the two pollinator gardens that have been installed.
Great Basin Water Company also held a free potted tree raffle. A number of people who won trees turned right around and donated their prize to Red Rock Audubon to be planted in Discovery Park. These trees will be planted on May 2nd, along with several mesquite trees obtained from the Nevada State Nursery. It seems that every day is Earth Day at Discovery Park!
