Friends of Gold Butte Paint Night! Make an Address Plaque!

Needs a location


We're having another Paint Night! This time you will create something useful as well as beautiful. These larger pieces of flagstone make an artistic statement as well as making your address visible from the street. You will also have a chance to visit with others and have a snack and a glass of wine!

You may choose from a selection of desert-themed images for the focal point and then add the numbers (with stencils to make it easier) and then embellish to your heart's content. These statement pieces look wonderful in your front yard or on your porch, and also make a nice holiday gift.

This event will take place at the Friends of Gold Butte visitor center, 12 W. Mesquite Blvd, Suite 106. We will supply snacks, wine and soft drinks, and all painting supplies. If you think you may get messy, bring an apron or old shirt to wear over your clothing.

This is a fundraiser for Friends of Gold Butte, so come and enjoy an evening of fun and creativity, while helping support our good work! All proceeds go to FoGB for operational costs, to enable us to continue our stewardship and educational activities. Register today and pay at the door for this fun, creative night with wine and soft drinks included. $30 per person, checks, credit card or cash accepted at the door.

Gold Butte Speaker Series- Native Virgin River Fish

Link visible for attendees

When you think about the Mojave Desert, tortoises, jackrabbits, roadrunners and other desert animals generally come to mind. Probably the last thing that comes to mind are aquatic species, but since a river runs through it, there are there are frogs, fish and other water-dwelling creatures right here in our local desert! Join the Friends of Gold Butte as we learn about the native fish common in the Virgin River.

Sky Hedden is the Colorado River Basin Coordinator for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Sky has been working with native fish across the American Southwest for the past 10 years. He will be talking about the Virgin River native fish community and how his department and collaborators manage this unique fish community. His talk will introduce the native fish that are found within the Virgin River, challenges these fish face for their continued existence, how past management activities have benefited native fish, and future plans to enhance the Virgin River native fish community.

Friends of Gold Butte is proud to offer this monthly speaker series free to the public. To learn more about our organization, visit our website: friendsofgoldbutte.org
