Envirolution was excited to host a group of 23 high school boys from around the Reno area last month. The young men from the Boys Team Charity group assisted with multiple material preparation tasks for programs like Career Quest, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, and Project ReCharge. As they say, many hands make light work, and these boys certainly made light work of the tasks they were given. Envirolution sends a big thank you to the Boys Team Charity! As always, if you’re looking for a way to give back to your community, check out the Envirolution volunteer sign-up below.Read More →

Thank you so much to Barbara and Dick Kuehner, Stephanie Facchini, Iris Blaisdell, and Jane Johnson for all that you do!Read More →

Just before the first snowfall in Reno, Envirolution was able to host another successful Pickett Park Cleanup on Saturday, November 7th.  We had a great turnout with 15 volunteers that helped the Envirolution staff keep Pickett Park clean. Everyone followed the proper safety protocols and had a great time despite the windy weather.  We collected close to 36 pounds worth of trash and two huge jars of cigarette butts.  Our next one will be in March of 2021, but in the meantime do your best to keep our parks clean.Read More →
