FlexFridays: Park Ranger Adventure

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park, located near Las Vegas, Nevada, is a historic site steeped in rich history and natural beauty. Once owned by the German actress and rancher Vera Krupp as well as magnate Howard Hughes, the property was transformed into a working ranch with a luxurious touch. The ranch features picturesque landscapes, including sprawling pastures and dramatic mountain backdrops, making it a popular destination for both nature lovers and history enthusiasts. Today, visitors can explore the preserved ranch house, various hiking trails, and enjoy the serene environment that once served as a retreat for one of Las Vegas's most intriguing figures.

Cloud FlexFriday students will join David Low, law enforcement ranger, for a tour of the park and some history and background about its unique features and environmental importance, followed by an AMA-style question and answer session.
