Raffle earns $490 for Park Search and Rescue Equipment
Thanks to Patagonia, REI, and the Nevada Northern Railway, the Foundation was able to raise $490 towards funding needed Search and Rescue equipment for the Park.
The raffling of two Patagonia backpacks, 1 REI backpacking tent, and 2 Nevada Northern Railway Star Train tickets, took place during the celebratory events on August 10 & 11 to celebrate the Great Basin Observatory's 2nd Birthday. Perfect timing, as we were also able to welcome Great Basin National Park's new superintendent, James Woolsey (pictured).
Great Basin National Park has many superlatives: the oldest trees, most decorated caves, diverse wildlife, and the darkest night skies. This time lapse film was created in honor of the Park's 30th anniversary in 2016.
