The Boys and Girls Club of Southern Nevada requests SNAG’s consideration for help with a tree assessment and design plan. They are seeking a “donation of service” to accomplish this need.
The Clubhouse involved is the Donald W. Reynolds Boys and Girls Club, which is located at 2980 Robindale Road, Henderson, NV 89074 (between Eastern and Pecos). It has a narrow back yard enclosed by a block wall. Mature trees with surface roots line the yard.
We will be presenting a training and experimentation day to help accomplish some of the objectives of the Boys and girls club. It has been determined that all the trees (20 Ash, 1 Cottonwood) need to be removed to facilitate a new play yard surface. This will be phase 1, phase 2 will be in the Fall of 2023.
