One APIA Nevada joins forces with the Asian Community Development Council and Nevada Chinese Association for Environmental Hiking Event

Las Vegas — One APIA Nevada announced its collaboration with the Asian Community Development Council (ACDC) and the Nevada Chinese Association (NCA) for a special hiking event scheduled for May 8th, 2024. The event will start at 9:00 am and conclude at 12:00 pm, bringing together community members for an enriching experience at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

Following the recent update to the Public Lands Rule, the conservation of habitats and developments to improve public lands will foster the resilience of natural resources to withstand climate change. Participants will embark on an educational hike through the Calico Basin within The Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, allowing participants to immerse themselves in the beauty of the natural surroundings and initiate conversations about environmental stewardship,  wildlife preservation, climate change, and land conservation.

Attendees can expect an informative experience, complete with in-language guided hikes both in English and Mandarin, and discussions on conservation efforts. The event aims to empower participants to make informed decisions for a more sustainable future.

The hiking event is open to guests from all backgrounds who share a passion for environmental conservation. As spaces are limited, participants are encouraged to register in advance to secure their spot for this experience.
