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).
