Learn about sheep preventing wildfires in Carson City

Nevada Appeal staff report

Hike in the hills and learn how sheep are helping prevent wildfires.

Carson City Parks, Recreation and Open Space are leading a trail graze guided hike on May 1 from 5:30-7 p.m. starting at the C hill trailhead off McKay Drive.

Borda Land & Sheep Co. recently released about 1,800 ewes and lambs to graze and cut down weeds that act as fuel for wildfires. The sheep are still grazing so hikers may get to see them in action.

Register for the walk at carson.org/ccpr.
