On this edition of Las Vegas City Scene we take a look at the importance of organ donation and the hundreds of lives that were saved last year in Nevada.  Nevada Donate Networks’ CEO Joe Ferreira joins us to talk about “Donate Life Month.” He also helps dispel myths surrounding organ donation.

Also, are you trying to figure out how to keep your kids busy when they are out of school for the summer?  The city of Las Vegas has dozens of great opportunities to keep your kids active.  Summer camps and swim lessons are open for registration in April.  We take a look at what kinds of camps are available as well as the costs associated with these activities.

Adults are also being urged to get active as we prepare for “Bike to Work” month.  A local biking enthusiast sits down with us to explain all of the benefits of leaving the car at home and riding to work. 

We also have your responses to our Facebook and Twitter question: “What’s the biggest issue facing downtown?”  Check out what other Las Vegas residents think during the “Social Scene.”
