The SSMGC is now changing its focus to benefit many elementary schools in the area. This will allow more children to broaden their life experiences by visiting the Animal Ark Wildlife Sanctuary and Nature Center located north of Reno.
A“Lil’ Scholar’s” Golf Tournament is taking place on June 11 at the Sierra Sage Golf Course in Stead. The proceeds will be used to sponsor additional low-income schools in Reno and Sparks for educational field trips to Animal Ark. Participation in this and future tournaments will ensure increased numbers of school children will have the opportunity to visit the Animal Ark.
For tournament information or to register, call Sierra Sage Golf Course, 775-972-1564.
Animal Ark is a nonprofit organization that houses animals which cannot be released back into the wild. Glass viewing areas offer visitors a window into nature, where they see wildlife in natural habitat exhibits. Educational programming is scheduled for Washoe County schools throughout the year.
