Here’s wishing all you Dads out there a great day. Here are some ideas for things to do on Father’s Day, which for 2021 is on Sunday, June 20.

Happy Father’s Day from!

The City of Reno Parks and Recreation Department offers a wide range of inclusive / adaptive programs and activities, including sport leagues, programs for veterans, rentals and volunteer opportunities. The goal is to provide accommodations to people with disabilities so that full participation in leisure and recreation programs, classes, services and facilities may be enjoyed by all.

The Adaptive Connect newsletter for summer, 2021, offers a continuing variety of ways those with disabilities can fully participate in Reno recreation programs.

Note that Reno works with the City of Sparks in presenting some activities. An example is Mark Wellman’s Adventure Day at Sparks Marina. It will be on Sunday, June 6, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. People with disabilities, and their families and friends, are invited to this free event, where adaptive climbing, kayaking, and cycling will be available.

“Grow Your Own, Nevada! – Gardening classes in Reno” is where you can learn how to grow vegetables and other plants in northern Nevada. It is a series of presentations sponsored by the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension (UNCE).

The classes are for home gardeners and small scale growers. They impart basic horticultural information and also provide information about new and alternative growing methods. If you are interested in food safety, self – sufficiency, and have a desire to eat locally grown food, these classes are for you.

The first class in the spring series is on Tuesday, April 6, 2021. This one is about starting plants from seed. All classes (8 in total) will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays in April, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Due to coronavirus concerns, classes will be held via Zoom this spring rather than in person.

There is no cost for the online classes, but you need to register to attend. Refer to my Grow Your Own, Nevada! article for information about registering and the topics of all classes in the series.
