World Wetlands Day science symposium returns

The Las Vegas Wash Coordination Committee (LVWCC) hosted its first World Wetlands Day science symposium since 2020 as the school year came to a close.

The event held at the Clark County Wetlands Park Nature Preserve included approximately 60 high school students, who toured the trails and enjoyed presentations by environmental professionals on various wetland topics.

The symposium was originally scheduled for February but had to be postponed due to high COVID-19 numbers.

Cox Communications and Get Outdoors Nevada helped make the symposium possible through generous financial assistance.
