Radon is often called “the silent killer,�? and one in four homes tested in Nevada has elevated levels! Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas. You can’t see, taste, or smell it, but it is the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers. Attend this event during National Radon Action Month to learn more, play fun games with prizes, and get a free kit to test your home for radon! This event is hosted by a Junior Girl Scout working on her Bronze Award in partnership with the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Radon Education Program. Girl Scouts attending will also earn a fun patch.
