Winnemucca, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Black Rock Field Office with partnering agencies is hosting the annual Black Rock Rendezvous event on May 22-25. BLM, Friends of Black Rock High Rock, Friends of Nevada Wilderness, and Nevada Outdoor School offer a three-day, environmentally friendly, camp-out event for volunteers to start off the summer season.
