Weekend’s Best Bets

1 ALL ABOUT EWE: Learn about the bighorn sheep that frequently visit the area from Nevada Department of Wildlife experts between 1-3:30 p.m. today at Hemenway Valley Park, 401 Ville Drive. Get basic facts about the animals and tips to watch them safely from a distance. Though sheep from the River Mountain Herd regularly visit the park, there is no guarantee they will attend the afternoon presentation.

2 WALK ON THE WILD SIDE: Join a ranger from Lake Mead National Recreation Area for a moonlight hike Saturday along the Historic Railroad Trail. While walking learn about nocturnal animals, their lifestyles and how the darkness benefits them. The hike starts at 7:30 p.m. Call 702-293-8990 for more information.

3 FEELING BLUE: Influenced by legendary artists such as Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Eric Clapton and ZZ Top, the Full Throttle Blues Band will bring its authentic mix of blues, rock ’n’ roll, reggae, and soul music to Jack’s Place from 6-10 p.m. Saturday. The four-piece group cranks out everything from traditional to contemporary tunes. Admission is free. Jack’s Place is at 544 Nevada Way. Call 702-293-2200 for more information.
