Red Rock Canyon Hosting Meeting on Wildlife Management in Wilderness Areas and Wilderness Study Areas

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Southern Nevada District Office and Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) is seeking input regarding issues related to wildlife management activities in wilderness and wilderness study areas.

BLM will host meetings on Tuesday, February 9 at 2 – 3:30 p.m. and 6 – 7:30 p.m. at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area visitor center classroom, 1000 Scenic Loop Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada 89161; and Wednesday, February 10 at 6 – 7:30 p.m. at the BLM Southern Nevada District Office, 4701 N. Torrey Pines Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada 89130.  The meetings will include a brief presentation from the BLM and NDOW followed by an open house.  Written comment forms will be available at the meeting. 

The BLM is in the process of preparing a Programmatic Environmental Assessment (EA) regarding NDOW’s Annual Operations and Maintenance Schedule of proposed fish and wildlife management activities, projects, and developments planned within 13 designated wilderness areas and four wilderness study areas throughout Southern Nevada.

Written comments may also be sent to [email protected] through February 26, 2016.  If you need additional information, please contact Steve Leslie, Wilderness planner at 702-515-5054 or [email protected].

The public will also have additional opportunities to comment on the proposed project when the draft Environmental Assessment is released in August 2016.

When participants enter the Red Rock Canyon NCA entrance station for the public meetings on February 9, they should tell the attendant that they are participating in the meetings and fees will be waived.
