How You Can Help


No matter where you live or how busy you are, there are many ways for you to ensure these public lands remain open to all as an extraordinary outdoor classroom and place to connect with Nature’s magnificence.

Your support of Friends of Black Rock-High Rock’s work makes you the driving force behind critical conservation projects in the Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon Emigrant Trail National Conservation Area.


When you donate $35 or more to Friends of Black Rock-High Rock you become a member. Your gifts help fund trail and habitat restoration, youth programs, wildlife conservation and more. As a member, you’ll receive special invitations, first-hand announcements and savings at our Visitor Center Store.


Volunteer! There are a variety of ways to make a difference, from helping visitors to restoring habitat. If you’d like to get out into the backcountry, help lead nature walks with the Fly Ranch project or discover other opportunities in Reno or out in the wilderness, drop us an email at
