Take a leisurely, two-hour walk around Spooner Lake, home to more than 100 species of wildflowers. Learn plant names, their uses, habitats and enjoy their beauty. The wildflower portion of this trip is during the first mile. Participants are not more than half-an-hour from the trailhead if they need to leave early. Children younger than 16 and pets should not take this hike. Comfortable clothes, walking shoes or boots and a hat are recommended. Bring water, snacks, sunscreen and insect repellent. This event is limited to 12 participants. Sign up by phone at 775-749-5980, or at the Spooner Lake Park Entrance Station.

The passport challenge continues: The Nevada State Parks Passport Booklet is now available and may be picked up at any state park. Visitors who have their booklets stamped at 15 different parks will earn a free annual pass to all Nevada State Parks. The booklet, which serves as a travel aid as well as travelogue for park visitors, includes photos, a description of each park, lists of amenities, travel journal pages and spaces for validation stamps which have been designed to reflect each state park.
