CARSON CITY — AAA Nevada presented $20,250 Tuesday to the Nevada Division of State Parks to improve directional signs throughout Lahontan State Recreation Area.
AAA Nevada teamed up to help Nevada State Parks help fund projects that would otherwise go unfunded. Throughout their “Summer Road Trip” campaign July 1 through Aug. 30, AAA Nevada donated five dollars to Nevada State Parks for every AAA insurance quote completed within each AAA branch office.
“We are thrilled and extremely grateful to receive AAA’s corporate support to improve the experience of our park visitors,” said David Morrow, Administrator for Nevada State Parks.
“AAA is deeply committed to the legacy and the preservation of Nevada’s unique natural, cultural and historic resources,” said Paul Gaffney, president and CEO of AAA Northern California, Nevada and Utah.
Lahontan Reservoir, with miles of sandy beach and lots of room to camp, boat, and recreate, is one of Nevada’s most popular recreation areas. Lahontan is located on the Carson River, 18 miles west of Fallon and 45 miles east of Carson City on U.S. 50. The park is open year-round and can be accessed from several entrances off U.S. 50 east of Silver Springs, and from an entrance off U.S. 95A, south of Silver Springs via Fir Avenue.
