NEW TNMCorps Mapping Challenge for Schools in CA & NV!

TNMCorps Mapping Challenges continue on the Pacific coast with a new challenge for schools in California and Nevada!  This is an excellent challenge for Peer Reviewers and Advanced Editors since all the existing points have already been edited, but there are many points needing to be reviewed.  Don’t forget to look for missing schools too!
