Nevada Outdoor School (NOS) inspires exploration of the natural world, responsible stewardship of our habitat and dedication to community. NOS connects Nevadans of all ages to the natural world, inspiring and creating healthy, active and engaged citizens who choose to explore the outdoors responsibly.
We envision a world where all people have the opportunity to learn and grow outdoors and choose to do so. We help motivate leaders, scientists and great thinkers who will not hide from the need to use or from the responsibility to respect and conserve the Earth’s natural resources.
NOS Programs influence positive outdoor behavior by providing people the motivation, knowledge, and skills to practice responsible outdoor recreation.
NOS Training Focused Programs include Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly! Trainer Courses and Awareness Workshops, ATV/OHV/Dirt Bike Safety, Hunter Safety, Teacher Workshops, and Outdoor Skills
NOS Healthy Community Focused Programs include Outdoor Recreation, Outdoor Resources, Outreach Events, Road Shows, and AmeriCorps National Service
Each year, AmeriCorps programs provide opportunities for more than 75,000 Americans to devote a period of time to community service. The NOS AmeriCorps program serves Nevada non-profits, schools, public agencies, and various community groups with members serving in communities across Nevada.
