Basin and Range
http://www.protectbasinandrange.org
Nevada’s public lands are among the most spectacular in the nation. From eight distinct majestic mountain ranges to the unspoiled Garden and Coal Valleys, Basin and Range is beloved by Nevadans and visitors from throughout the country who come to hike, camp, hunt, bike, climb, and explore art and cultural sites in the great outdoors just a few hours from the bright lights of Las Vegas.

Permanently protecting the Basin and Range area would:
1) Safeguard significant archaeological resources within the Mount Irish Rock Art and White River Narrows Archaeological Districts, numerous cultural sites found in the Garden and Coal Valleys, as well as sacred tribal lands.

2) Protect habitat for at least two dozen threatened and sensitive wildlife species as well as priority habitat for sage grouse, mule deer, and pygmy rabbit.

3) Preserve the uniquely American landscape art work by Michael Heizer, City. With a relationship to the earliest archeological sites that are inextricably linked to the landscape, City cannot be experienced within a museum given it is more than a mile in length and a quarter mile in width.

Future generations of Americans deserve to be able to experience these wondrous landscapes as they are today. I urge Congress and the Administration to take whatever steps necessary to ensure permanent protection for Basin and Range before it is too late. Now is the time to protect Nevada’s special places!

Take action

The Basin and Range conservation proposal offers a rare opportunity to protect an unspoiled expanse of Basin and Range Country – protecting the spectacular and largely intact Garden Valley and the neighboring Coal Valley as well as protecting the connections between eight distinct mountain ranges (Timpahute, Pahroc, Worthingtons, Mt. Irish Range, Seaman Range, Golden Gate Range, Grant Range, Quinn Canyon Range).

Many areas in this region do not have any designated trails or other amenities. However, the area is open to the public for nature study, technical rock climbing, rock scrambling, hiking, mountain biking, birding, horseback riding, backpacking, and camping. Hunting is also allowed.
