Beetle BioBlitz Great Basin National Park will host its 10th Annual BioBlitz on June 12-14, 2018. This year focuses on beetles (Order Coleoptera), and Nevada State Entomologist Jeff Knight will lead participants to find beetles all over the park, day and into the night. The event is timed for the New Moon so that it is easier to attract the flying nocturnal beetles. There will be a variety of field trips, plus a potluck dinner, star gazing, and a final ...

Pahrump Correspondence – June 2015

Pahrump still has a natural spring that one can walk to The small town Pahrump is here for only one reason: the first settlers found water close to the surface. Of course, that was vital to the survival of those first settlers for they had no well-drilling equipment. One such spring can still be seen on the south side of town if you are willing to take a walk. The native Paiute and Shoshone also depended on water. So how ...

I had the pleasure of meeting fellow NevadaGram contributors David Toll and Dana Nollsch in Sparks a couple of weeks ago to celebrate the restoration of Last Chance Joe! Thanks to Crown Painting, Joe’s holes are patched up, he’s repainted, and the gap-toothed 32-foot optimistic icon is ready to greet Northern Nevada visitors once again. However, it takes a good amount of funds to keep Joe looking fresh, so consider sharing your Sparks love by making a donation or buying ...

Branding Time Every weekend in May is a branding event, when the calves are separated from their moms to get their vaccinations, ear tags and castration. Some ranches will brand their calves, while others mark them with a distinct ear cut. It takes a lot of people to do a branding, and while some are paid, many volunteer. After the calves and moms are separated, cowboys and cowgirls will go rope a calf (it’s not so easy!). Once a hind ...

Diamond Jack wasn’t surprised when he received an invitation to visit El Burro Borracho at the Rio All-Suite Hotel. The restaurant, adjacent to the lively VooDoo Beach pool, comes from Emmy Award-winning television host Guy Fieri, who I met and spent time with when he opened Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at The LINQ Hotel. The literal translation of El Burro Borracho is "Drunken Donkey," and one can achieve that moniker by enjoying Fieri’s signature jalapeno-infused Caliente Margarita. However, ...

Pahrump Has the Need for Speed Not all towns can say they have a speedway. The Pahrump Valley Speedway is a hidden gem, especially if you enjoy watching action packed motorsports.  I say "hidden" because people can live here for years, and, unless they follow motorsports or race themselves, they may never find out that the track even  exists. It is a small track and is hidden away, but it is a gem for the amount of action and entertainment ...

Heritage: The word “heritage” as a noun, is defined as “something that is handed down from the past, as a tradition.”  As an adjective it is defined as “noting or relating to a product, place, etc., that evokes a nostalgic sense of tradition or history”.  And there you have it, an ideal description of Carson Valley and within it, the town of Genoa. I imagine most people are proud of their heritage, whether it is their nationality or where they ...

Spring Gardening The snow is melting, the ground is thawing, and it is time to head outside and do a little gardening. My favorite place for plants and gardening supplies is Colorscapes in Lamoille. Marvel Clyde has been operating this nursery for years and I've always been happy with the variety and quality of plants that are sourced for the high desert growing conditions. In addition, her knowledge and advice for gardening in our climate is terrific. Colorscapes is open ...
