Nevada's wild Basin and Range region needs protection
Just two hours from Las Vegas, Nevada’s Basin and Range region boasts unspoiled land rich in historical, cultural, and natural resources. To preserve these wilderness treasures, residents are urging protection for the area.
Keeping this large area intact would help conserve irreplaceable Native American rock art, preserving a glimpse into the lives and culture of some of the earliest Americans. Permanent protection would shield wildlife habitat for mule deer, pronghorn, elk, and greater sage-grouse. It also would protect the area’s rare and sensitive plants—one of which, the White River catseye, is found nowhere else on the planet.
