Daytrip - Las Vegas Springs Preserve

On 05/11/2016 I visited the Las Vegas Springs Preserve for the third time in a month. on this visit I was accompanied by Bob Croke and Jim Herring. Neither of them had ever been there before. Featuring two museums, several galleries, a colorful botanical garden and a 2.25 miles interpretive trail system that meanders through a wetland habitat, I provided them with a quick overview of this huge 180-acre facility. We scenic spent more than half the time just touring the Origen Museum and hiking more than a mile of the interpretive trail system learning about the water history of the Las Vegas Valley.
