Today we highlight the Walker Basin Conservancy AmeriCorps program, with program contacts words saying it best for us. Thank you Miguel!

Q: What would you want potential members to know about your program?

A: "The Walker Basin Conservancy (Conservancy) leads the effort to restore and maintain Walker Lake while protecting agricultural, environmental and recreational interests in the Walker Basin (http://ow.ly/VwE850L0smE). The Conservancy acquires water rights and ranches to increase freshwater flows to Walker Lake. We re-establish native plant communities on former agricultural fields, increase public access and recreation opportunities, and develop practical solutions to save Walker Lake. From creating Nevada’s newest State Park (Walker River State Recreation Area) to adding thousands of acres to Wildlife Management Areas, our work impacts thousands of community members, ranchers and recreationists every year."

Nevada Volunteers created a tool (with the help of some lovely IT support at Inspiring Service) called NV Volunteer Connect.

The purpose? To make it easier for individuals to access volunteer opportunities, and for nonprofits to find strong volunteer candidates.

If you are looking for an opportunity click the link in our bio to be connected to our current database of organizations! 😇

Want to join the list of organizations, or just recruit for a specific event? Email Shannon Arimura at shannon@nevadavolunteers.org!

In the spirit of helping our programs spread awareness about their open positions, and our desire to educate more individuals on AmeriCorps in Nevada- we introduce the "AmeriCorps Nevada State Program Highlight Series", catchy name right?

Our first program is Nevada Recovery Corps, housed within Foundation For Recovery! (tagged within this image of course) Jessi, their program director, gave us her insight into what potential members should know about the program and AmeriCorps in general.

Hispanic Heritage Month- September 15th to October 15th, 2022.

Did you know that about 40 percent of our states citizens identify as Hispanic/Latinx? It's important that we take this dedicated time to make room for and amplify voices that often go unheard.

We begin doing this by paying tribute to the generations of Hispanic & Latino/a/x/e individuals who have positively impacted and enriched our communities. We also proudly celebrate and recognize the contributions, influence and achievements of the Hispanic/Latinx volunteers, and service members in our state!
