Today, President Barack Obama proclaimed his largest national monument on America’s public lands, protecting more than 700,000 acres of our spectacular Basin and Range landscape. This is great news – please join us in thanking him, as well as Senator Harry Reid and Congresswoman Dina Titus for championing this effort.

The new Basin and Range National Monument will preserve a region that is rich in historic, cultural, and natural resources—a treasure for Nevadans and all Americans. This designation will help safeguard irreplaceable Native American rock art and sacred tribal lands, shield habitat for at least two dozen threatened and endangered wildlife species, protect rare and sensitive plants, and preserve the lands surrounding the expansive art work by Michael Heizer on his private land known as "The City."
