We’re having a fundraiser!

Hi everyone!

We are excited to announce our first spring fundraiser happening Sunday, April 28th, from 3:30-7:30 at the Lake Mansion Pavilion, 250 Court St. in Reno, right across from the Great Basin Food Co-Op. We are having two sets of activities:

From 3:30-4:30 we’ll have kids activities like a seedling planting and live insects and other animals to handle. Come learn about insect diversity in our area, learn about how plants and animals interact, and get a seedling that’s good for food and makes a pollinator plant!

From 4:30-7:00 we’ll have a home-brew tasting with 5 different types of beer all made by UNR students and alumni! We’ll also feature a silent auction with handmade items made by local artisans and businesses. Come enjoy a spring afternoon with handcrafted beer and a bit of food, see some insects, and learn more about our project!

Be sure to share our flier with your friends!
