Please call Congressman Hardy’s office and urge him to defend this precious habitat: DC Office: (202) 225-9894 

President Obama Protects Basin and Range National Monument

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.

Help Re-authorize the Land & Water Conservation Fund

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) has helped protect some of Nevada’s most treasured places. Nevada has received approximately $104 million over the past five decades from this non-taxpayer fund to help protect places such as the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. We need your help to ensure the LWCF is reauthorized before it expires in September 2015, and at the same time, urge Congress to provide robust funding for LWCF when funding levels are decided this summer. Sign the petition here!
