RENO — Three local bands are donating their musical talents to help raise funds for fire restoration efforts at Bartley Ranch Regional Park. Homemade Jam, Electric Catfish and Guitar Woody and the Boilers will play a benefit concert at the park’s popular Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater at 6 p.m. on Sept. 22. Doors open at 5 p.m. Robert Z. Hawkins Amphitheater is located in Bartley Ranch Regional Park at 6000 Bartley Ranch Road in Reno.

Ticket cost $15 for reserved seats, $10 for lawn. All proceeds go directly to fire restoration at the park. Tickets can be purchased online at www.washoecountyparks.com, or at the Washoe County Parks Office located at 2601 Plumas St. in Reno, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Local businesses donating their services include Starsound Audio, ESI Security Services, and 100.1 FM the X. Hacienda Restaurant and Great Basin Brewery will have food and beverages available for purchase.

On Nov. 18, the Caughlin Fire burned about 24 acres of Bartley Ranch Regional Park. Restoration efforts have been underway since the devastating fire with many individuals and organizations graciously helping to rebuild many of the bridges, fences and trails. The proceeds from this concert will help provide Washoe County Parks with the necessary funding to continue the revegetation of the area. This popular portion of the park has been closed for restoration since the fire and establishing native vegetation is vital to its re-opening.
