Joshua Tree Seed Planting -- Spring Mountains Volunteer Project

September 28 -- National Public Lands Day -- we'll join fellow volunteers, the folks from Go Mt. Charleston and the U.S. Forest Service to plant Joshua Tree seeds. The planting will take place in the vicinity of Harris Springs Road and will help accelerate revegetation of an area burned by the Carpenter 1 fire.

The seeds we'll be planting were gathered in August by volunteers, including members of the LVMC.

We'll meet at 8:30 am to carpool, and the project will run from 9 am - 12 pm. Anyone is welcome to participate, though children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and have a signed parental consent form. Activities will involve walking on uneven terrain, bending and planting seeds by hand. Please wear sturdy closed-toe shoes, pants, a hat and work gloves, and bring water and sunscreen.

When the date gets closer I will email participants with a carpool location.

In the meantime, please remember to answer the questions after RSVP'ing. If you are using a phone, the questions may not appear, so please go back on your computer to answer the questions. In addition to RSVP'ing here, please register directly with Cody Dix at [masked] or[masked]-5408.

      Hi Jose- Thank you so much for volunteering!! Just to clarify, most of the volunteers received a single entrance pass rather than an annual pass. Fingers crossed that the seeds you planted sprout!

    I have verified with Cody at Go Mt. Charleston who is registered for Saturday's volunteer project and have adjusted the RSVP's accordingly. Friday morning I will email those attending with a carpool location. I look forward to seeing you Saturday!

    For those who did not register in advance, there is now a waiting list, and if you'd like to be placed on it you can email Cody to let him know.

    My Saturday is really full , and if there are people waiting and want to attend, I will not go. I will email Cody now. I was looking forward to meeting new people though, as this would have been my first meet up. Oh well, next time!

    September 25, 2013

    • Michelle N.

      Thanks again for letting me know Janelle. Hopefully we'll have a chance to meet another time -- keep an eye on the calendar as we typically do some sort of volunteer project every month.

    I am in the attending list of LVMC but cody@gomtcharleston put me in the waiting list. I would like to go but I did not that I need to reserve a place with gomtcharleston simultaneously.

      I'm a dork, and I know it. When I initially read the posting, I read that (and it computed), but I had to wait to RSVP until I had my schedule figured out. When I realized I could make it, I just jumped in quick to claim a spot, but I forgot about the extra step and didn't reread the description. Live and learn, I guess!! Maybe it's for the best, since I was going to miss most of Kenny's baseball game, and he's sad when I'm not in the stands.

      September 25, 2013

    • Michelle N.

      Oh well, glad you can make Kenny's game. next time.

    See you up there, already volunteered thru gomtcharleston for this event. Then camping at Hilltop after.
