Nevada Outdoor School is a tremendous asset to the community. Their work to educate children and adults about responsible recreation has far reaching benefits to the overall health of our public lands. They are a great partner with other nonprofit organizations and government agencies to further extend their reach and have a greater impact fulfilling their mission.
NOS is awesome. Swing by our website to see what super cool events and activities we are offering at the moment.
We love Nevada Outdoor School. We love the nature based lessons and summer camps that are often offered for free in our community.
This organization is always striving to create new programs and provide opportunities for the community to get outside and have fun. There are not many organizations that do what they do in this area and so it's great that they are here!
Nevada Outdoor School provides fun, educational, and hands-on learning experiences to youth across Northern Nevada. Teaching youth about outdoor education, responsible stewardship of our public lands, and necessary outdoor skills helps inspire them to pursue outdoor hobbies and pass their knowledge to others.
Nevada Outdoor School's mission is so inspiring and encouraging to our kids to get outside and learn about the natural world. With COVID this year, we were shocked that they were able to offer summer camp programs (modified) to meet our community's needs! Thank you for caring about our kids!
Nevada Outdoor School is the #1 Outdoor Education Provider in rural, northern Nevada! They provide nature based lessons, field trips and summer camps for youth and Tread Lightly, Leave No Trace, ATV and Hunter Safety for all ages. Join them on a community hike in some of their favorite recreation areas or at their annual fundraiser event - the Buckaroo Dutch Oven Cook Off in September.
It is amazing what this small group is able to do. Fabulous programs for kids and adults are well attended and appreciated by our community. I enjoy each staff person and it is apparent they love their job! We are fortunate to have Nevada Outdoor School in Winnemucca!
Nevada Outdoor School has helped our first graders with many concepts. One of the funnest was snowflakes. We had a whole unit on snowflakes. NOS came in and reinforced what we had learned and then made snowflakes with the kids.
during this period of the gov't shutting down all school, as well as other, programs for young people, this was the activity we found for my 11 year old to participate in. No thanks to the gov't. but thanks to your concern for your youth she was able to interact with others for a few hours this summer.
I have two kids (5&7). They absolutely love all of the camps and programs put on by NOS. They love learning about nature and I love that they also learn to respect Mother Nature and how to help preserve it for future generations. NOS is awesome.
Nevada Outdoor School came into our school to help teachers with Common Core based Science lessons that help connect students/kids with real world outdoor wild life and wild lands. Kids get excited when the NOS people show up and even help lead them on field trips to water sheds, former glacier sites, and in the summer operate summer camps indoors and out in the fields and mountains.
I have been donating to Nevada Outdoor School for the past seven years. I strongly believe in their mission and appreciate their passion for getting people outside and encouraging respect and appreciation for the natural world. NOS does great work throughout rural northern Nevada and beyond teaching the next generation of leaders and thinkers to understand and value science and the environment.
Keep up the great work!
NOS has been doing, and I'm sure will continue to, a great job providing benefits for the local community. Besides the thousands of children taught over the years, they have provided AmeriCorps Volunteers to many other local non-profits!
