The Nevada Radon Education Program (NREP) educates Nevadans about the radon health risk (lung cancer), how to test for the gas and the process for reducing an elevated level of the lung cancer-causing gas. Lander County Extension received the National Radon Action Month Proclamation from the Lander County Commissioners on December 20th. Additionally, Extension was able to advertise on the Battle Mountain’s Civic Center digital billboard during the free test kit period. NDOT estimates that 3,300 vehicles pass the area each day.
Horticulture provided 12 Grow Your Own gardening classes in the fall, and 16 classes in the spring.
There were three pesticide safety education and certification classes, pest and plant identification, and noxious weed education. Extension also partnered with community and advisory groups to plan and implement the planting of native Nevada trees in the Austin Cemetery in the spring of 2019.
