Everything in our area seems to be named after Christopher “Kit” Carson, from Carson City and the Carson River, to the Carson Pass and Carson Valley. Join a park ranger at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 9 at Genoa’s Mormon Station State Historic Park to find out why.

The ranger will discuss the life and adventures of the frontier legend who left a mark on Northern Nevada. This event is free and all ages are welcome. To attend, meet at the museum. The presentation will be inside the wagon shed.

Mormon Station State Historic Park is at 2307 Main St., Genoa. There is a $1 entry fee for the museum, (children 12 years and younger are free), and there is no charge to visit the park grounds.

The Nevada State Parks Passport Booklet is available at any state park. Visitors who have their booklets stamped at 15 different parks will earn a free annual pass to all Nevada State Parks. The booklet, which serves as a travel aid as well as travelogue for park visitors, includes photos, a description of each park, lists of amenities, travel journal pages and spaces for validation stamps which have been designed to reflect each unique state park.
