Spectacular National Monuments in California and Nevada

Two new national monuments cover more than a million acres across Nevada and California.

The 704,000-acre Basin and Range National Monument, north of Las Vegas, will safeguard irreplaceable Native American rock art, wildlife habitat, and rare and sensitive plants.

And the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument—which encompasses about 330,780 acres near Sacramento and San Francisco—will boost the region’s tourism, stimulate the local economy, improve recreational opportunities, and protect important species.
