Our actions at Get Outdoors Nevada are always consistent with our commitment to encouraging others to discover, experience and connect to our state’s natural wonders, vast and unique landscapes. We maintain continuous accountability to our mission in the service of Nevada’s residents, visitors and the outdoors.
Get Outdoors Nevada, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was formerly known as the Outside Las Vegas Foundation. The original organization was formed in 2000 by a group of passionate Nevada outdoor enthusiasts and community leaders. This dynamic group predicted a critical link between our spectacular outdoors places and our quality of life.
We changed our name to Get Outdoors Nevada in 2018 because we celebrate and support ALL of Nevada’s amazing outdoor experiences.
Today, it is Get Outdoors Nevada’s mission and vision to connect Nevadans and visitors from all backgrounds and ages to the state’s diverse outdoor places. To this end, we pursue a three-fold approach of education, service, and community engagement. Many of our efforts and programs focus on the needs and lives of families and school children, especially those who are at-risk and often have limited opportunity to experience the great outdoors.
We are committed to preserving Nevada’s public lands, urban trails, and community parks. We love Nevada and Nevada’s outdoors.
How do we accomplish our mission and vision?
- We empower residents and visitors alike by promoting options for healthy and happy lifestyles through outdoor adventures.
- We provide life-long learning S.T.E.A.M. programs for young children and older students that inspire studying the outdoors.
- We offer meaningful service opportunities that encourage stewardship of our natural landscapes, local parks, and urban trails.
- We create valuable stakeholder partnerships and consistently build positive relationships with foundations, businesses, government bodies, and other community groups that value Nevada’s treasured outdoor environments.
