Into Nature: The History of Camping in the Far West

Please join the University Libraries' Special Collections and University Archives Department for a "Last Chance" talk and guided tour of our "Into Nature: The History of Camping in the Far West" exhibit. Curator Kim Roberts will examine the economic, cultural and social factors that led to the rise of camping after the Civil War, culminating in an outdoor recreation boom during the early twentieth century. She will also lead a guided tour of the exhibit calling attention to key images and artifacts on display.

The event is free. All are welcome. To attend, please RSVP to Robin Monteith via email at robinmonteith@unr.edu
