Jade VanDerBleekHello everyone, Jade here! I am excited and honored to introduce myself as the Executive Assistant at Friends of the Amargosa Basin in Shoshone, CA. Having lived in Pahrump, in the heart of the Nevada desert for the past 20 years, I’ve developed a deep appreciation for the unique beauty and delicate balance of our desert ecosystems.

I am eager to contribute to our mission of protecting and  preserving the unique and vital ecosystem of the Amargosa Basin. I am ecstatic to work diligently alongside each of you to continue our important work and achieve our shared goals. I would love to connect with you all, whether in person at our office or through email at Please feel free to reach out, introduce yourself, and share any insights or suggestions you may have!
