June 26: Dogs and Drones
 
Join us Friday, June 26, 4-7pm for Dogs and Drones - a free and open community meetup in which we learn how use smart phones and drones. Let us know if you're attending and please bring all or more of the following: dog, drone, smartphone, plastic bag to pick up anything you might want to pick up.

Through the summer Dogs and Drones will take place the last Friday of the month in Henderson's Discovery Park in Green Valley Ranch (see the Google Map). This free and casual meetup connects dog lovers and drone aficionados as a pretext for a friendly neighborhood meet-and-greet. Get to know the names of your neighbors! Bonus points if you bring a ukelele. Meeting point: Horseshoes! Parking is nearby off of Walnut Village Road.

Participants are expected to practice responsible pet ownership. Clean up bags will be available, but please come prepared to clean up after your dog.

Remote participants are welcome. Use this event to help you plan your next visit to Southern Nevada. We will be talking about nearby state parks, national parks and wildlife refugees. Please like and share the event with any friends who are in the area. Below are recommended resources for locals and visitors alike keen on the local environment and rich traditions.
