Galena Creek Visitors Center Educational Programs: Partnerships

Galena Creek Educational Project invitation for partnerships

The link above leads to a detailed description of the Galena Creek Visitor Center educational projects we currently offer and enhancements we are in the process of developing to make our Center, our School visitation and camp programs, and our teacher education programs even better.

The Galena Creek projects are sponsored by the Great Basin Institute (GBI), a non-profit organization that runs a multitude  environmental preservation and restoration programs.  GBI operates the Galena Creek Visitors Center on the Mt. Rose Highway under an agreement with the Forest Service and Washoe County Parks Department, the Center residing in Galena Regional Park, a forested area ten miles from the Reno city center.  As the document shows, GBI uses the park as the setting for youth science camps during fall break and the summer.

We are hoping to enlist people to support our programs.  If interested, contact me at or at 775-343-6888.  We have a great thing going here and are working toward magnificent and better.
