Gold Butte is Nevada’s piece of the Grand Canyon. It is a treasure trove of cultural, historic, and natural wonders located between the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument and Lake Mead National Recreation Area. And today Gold Butte is our nation’s newest national monument.
This incredible victory for our public lands was made possible by the thousands of people like you in Nevada and across the country who joined Tribes, elected officials, business owners, community groups, and recreationists to call on our national leaders to safeguard a beloved landscape.
Thank President Obama and congressional champions Senator Reid and Congresswoman Titus now!
Gold Butte is an amazing place. Now that it is a national monument, future generations are assured opportunities to experience the great outdoors through hiking, hunting, birding, camping, off-road vehicle riding on designated trails, and traditional tribal uses. Its marvels include thousands of petroglyphs, historic mining and pioneer-era artifacts, rare and threatened wildlife, dramatic geologic features like red sculpted sandstone and rock spires, and fossil sites that are now protected forever.
