This spring, River Wranglers conducted two Carson River Festivals; one in conjunction with the
Dayton Valley Chamber of Commerce
Oodles of Noodles Festival
in Old Town Dayton and the other at Ft. Churchill State Historic Park with partners, Nevada State Parks and Silver Stage High School. It was a lot of work but great fun to work with teens from Dayton and Silver Stage High Schools.
The Oodles of Noodles offered us an audience that we never attracted on our own and it was great to teach the public about our watershed. Dayton teens did a great job preparing and they interacted well with all the people out spending an enjoyable day in the sun.
Thanks to the Lyon County Room
Tax Board, we received a $2500 grant to advertise the event. Ryan Woodard, a student from Douglas High School, designed the artwork used on posters, flies, postcards and t-shirts. Thanks, Ryan and Lyon County Room Tax Board!
