Outreach and education day at the Pine Grove site and partnering with folks from the “Nevada Backroads” group to make a difference at Pine Grove. PNMTA will have our traditional information table to discuss issues and good stewardship, OHV registration and its importance, and supply tools to do a clean-up day as well. Items we hope to accomplish, aside from picking up trash, is to cut a wildfire defensible area around the remaining buildings and take a photo inventory of all the remaining structures and artifacts.
With an overt ‘maintenance’ presence at Pine Grove, it is hoped the casual visitor will see this as an active space and, hopefully, not be so quick to continue dismantling the town.
The long-term strategy is to encourage another local group to formally adopt the townsite, something akin to “Friends of Bodie,” where this group would note the status of the town and, if needed, schedule a stewardship day.
Memorial Day Weekend, some Pine Nutters will head south to camp and ride out of Gold Point. The Dunes and Trails ATV club will be coming up from Clark County to join in the weekend as well. There is room for RV camping and some mine cabins you can rent for the night, as well. Camping is available with a $5.00 fee, which is used to help maintain the townsite. YOU NEED to make reservations if you want to stay in one of the old cabins or camp in the town.
Please join us Memorial Day Weekend – Gold Point is 1 hour north of Beatty. Some more interesting reading on Gold Point.
