The University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Nevada Naturalist program presents Hiking with your ears as part of the 2015 Lecture Series on May 14.
Join Fred Bell as he discusses his search for quiet places around Nevada. There are many great places to see in Nevada, but with an inquiring mind and open ears, there are also great places to listen, as well.
Bell is a Nevada Naturalist graduate, hiker, camper, fisherman and photographer. He is now revisiting some of his favorite places and others long forgotten or overlooked during his 23-year residency in Las Vegas with renewed purpose and passion for discovering their remarkable sonic qualities. He has been quoted as saying that, “there are plenty of wonderful things to hear, but our modern world is full of unwanted noise, and that natural quiet may be the most unrealized extinction of our time.”
The free, hour-long presentation begins at 7 p.m., at the Lifelong Learning Center located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev. For more information, email or call Denise Parsons at 702-948-5906.
