Old Mill Picnic Area
About this Event
As the days get shorter and temperatures drop, animals in the Spring Mountains are getting ready for winter. Join an educator at the Old Mill picnic area to learn how the animals of the Spring Mountains prepare for winter and how you can be prepared for winter as well. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of the program. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable hiking clothes and dress in layers. Temperatures in the Spring Mountains can be 20-30 degrees cooler than in Las Vegas. Please bring 1 liter of water per person.
