RENO — As cartographer for the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, Jack Hursh has traveled thousands of miles across the Silver State, visiting remote places few Nevadans ever see.

An award-winning photographer, Hursh always brings his camera along so he can share his adventures with others.

Share the Nevada adventure when Hursh presents the slide-show “Discover Nevada” at 6:30 p.m. on July 9 at Bartley Ranch Regional Park. Hursh will tell stories and show photos of the many fascinating rocks, plants, animals and historical places he’s discovered while exploring Nevada.

“Discover Nevada” is presented as part of the “Stop the Car, Dad!” photography exhibit currently on display at Bartley Ranch. The exhibit reflects artist Erik Lauritzen’s fascination with the oddly beautiful and often bizarre scenes left behind after someone’s abandoned attempt to scrape a living out of the vast wilderness of the Great Basin. Photographs show the strange, unexpected, alluring and sometimes disturbing scenes that are found along the roadways of Nevada.

“Stop the Car, Dad!” is on display at the Western Heritage Interpretive Center through Aug. 5. The exhibit is open every day and admission is free. “Stop the Car, Dad!” is part of the Nevada Arts Council’s Nevada Touring Initiative – Traveling Exhibition Program.

The Western Heritage Interpretive Center is inside Bartley Ranch Regional Park, located at 6000 Bartley Ranch Road in Reno. For more information, call 823-6500 or visit
