If you haven’t visited Clark County Wetlands Park before, you’re really missing out! Here’s your chance to learn about the Park from someone who was there from its earliest beginnings.
Wetlands Park Friends is proud to present: “An Afternoon with Friends: A Peek at the Park,” October 22nd from 1:00-2:30 PM in the Park Nature Center Meeting Room. The lecture is free and open to Friends members, Park volunteers, and the public.
Special guest speaker Chris Leavitt will provide an insider’s view of what it took to create the 2,900-acre, managed wild area and its many unique features.

The lecture will be followed by refreshments and conversation.
