CARSON CITY, Nev.–Permits will go on sale September 15 for the Nevada Division of State Park’s annual wood sale.
The sale starts at 8:30 a.m. at the Carson City State Library and Archives on S. Stewart Street. Permits are $45 (cash or check only) per cord and are limited to one cord per address/family.
Wood is limited. About 100 cords/permits are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A mixture of pine and fir, some seasoned and some green, will be scheduled for pickup at Spooner Lake of Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park between September 22 through September 28 and again October 5 through October 9.
The wood will need to be picked up from the park’s North Canyon. The wood is in an accessible location, but four-wheel trucks are strongly suggested. The use of trailers is also fine. Most of the wood is in stove lengths although some odd sized and large rounds are possible.
The Nevada Division of State Parks plans, develops and maintains a system of parks and recreation areas for the use and enjoyment of more than 2.3 million visitors a year. The division was established in 1963 by the Nevada Legislature to form a new state park agency within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The division manages and maintains 24 parks in Nevada.
