Galena Creek Visitor Center Community Outreach Coordinator
The Great Basin Institute (GBI) is an interdisciplinary field studies organization that promotes environmental research, education, and conservation throughout the West. GBI enhances the community engagement through our Interpretative Association operation at the Galena Creek Visitors Center, a USDA Forest Service facility jointly managed by Washoe County. At Galena, GBI offers community activities and events, field studies for schools, and day and residential outdoor education programs for youth. The goal of the Galena Creek Visitor Center is to encourage understanding, appreciation, and appropriate use of the natural, cultural, and historical resources of the Galena Canyon area and the Mount Rose Scenic Byway. This program will augment existing STEM programming at Galena Creek Visitor Center to reach more students, extend STEM programming to Lake Tahoe Unified School District students, and implement Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives for STEM education programs offered by the Galena and Taylor Creek Visitor Centers.
