Sierra Club Toiyabe Chapter annually offers a service trip to Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge in northwest Nevada for a work day and to simply celebrate the natural beauty of the high desert and to almost certainly view antelope on the refuge. Friday and Sunday are travel days, with Saturday set aside for a work project to be determined by the refuge manager. In recent past trips, the refuge manager has camped with us; so it’s a great time to learn about the refuge. There is a five hour drive from Reno to Sheldon, part of it is over a gravel road. We often caravan and share rides. As there are no services anywhere nearby, participants must be fully geared up — bring tent, sleeping gear, cooking gear, durable clothing, boots, hats, gloves, sun protection, warm layers for the evening, rain gear, and food and water. A chair is also necessary. We have a potluck dinner on Saturday night. Questions: contact the leader using "How to find us" information below.
