Earth Day in the desert by Andy Holtmann The Las Vegas Natural History Museum is set to celebrate Earth Day Nevada on April 5. The museum, located at 900 North Las Vegas Blvd., has joined forces with local busi- nesses and organizations to educate and encourage the community to take part in the environment. Desert ecology is the main focus of this year's event, with presentations from conservation and environmen- tal organizations that include Desert Demonstration Gardens and Desert Re- search Institute. Several lectures on Nevada's own environment that inform about desert wildflowers, ravens, desert S tortoises, Lake Mead, and Red Rock, are also ' slated. Two orphaned mountain lion cubs named Chero- kee and Cheyenne will be presented by Jungle Friends, a local animal rescue organization. UNLV and the Southern Nevada Herpetological Society will both be bringing reptiles such as rattlesnakes, desert tortoises, Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, April 3, 1997 29 and gila monsters, for the public to view. Las Vegas Honda will be sponsoring a recycling center and demonstrating creative uses for materi- als. Visitors are encouraged to bring their used alluminium cans to the exhibit. "The desert is a unique part of our world, and is more fragile than some think," said Marilyn Gillespie, the event' s executive director. "Earth Day Nevada allows the people of Las Ve- gas to see, hear, and touch their natu- ral environment and learn how to protect it." In addition to the festivities, the mu- seum itself offers many multisensory exhibits. The public is invited to touch j items like coyote fur and elk skin or smell juniper and badger. There is also a Marine Room and the Dinosaur Den that has five mechanical dino- saurs that move and growl. Admission to this year's Earth Day event is $5 per adult, $2.50 per child four to 12 years, and $4 for students, seniors, and military.
