Nevada hot springs lecture set for March 29 in Reno


CARSON CITY, Nev. — Photographer and naturalist Bob Goodman will present photos and information about Nevada’s hot springs in “A Closer Look at STAY AWAY,” 1 p.m. March 29 at the Nevada Historical Society, 1650 N. Virginia St. in Reno. The event is free.

Nevada has the largest number of hot springs of any state in the lower 48, according to information from the Nevada Historical Society. Although many folks enjoy soaking in hot springs, in Nevada, many hot springs have water at lethal temperatures. Goodman has visited and photographed many of those hot springs —infrequently visited because of the water temperature or small size — to offer a look at the life that forms in undisturbed areas.

Details: Nevada Historical Society, 775-688-1190.
