Take Action

 

Hi Friends! Take a moment to learn about and get involved with conservation efforts around our state. Below are the top campaigns we're working on to stop actions that may threaten wilderness and public lands in Nevada. Find out what we've been doing to score a conservation win and how you can take action to help us reach that goal! 


Desert National Wildlife Refuge - The Desert National Wildlife Refuge, just outside the city lights of Las Vegas and home to one of Nevada’s largest desert bighorn sheep populations and over 1.2 million acres of proposed wilderness has been under assault by the military. On March 3 our delegation took the extraordinary step to provide permanent protection for 1.3 million acres of the refuge as Wilderness as part of the Southern Nevada Economic Development and Conservation Act (S 567 and HR 1597)

Save the Stillwaters - The BLM managed wildlands in Churchill County are safe for now. With the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act at the end of 2020 the Fallon Training Range Complex was not expanded. It just received a 25-year extension of the current boundaries. We anticipate the Navy will be pushing very hard for expansion in this 117th Congress.

Wild Washoe - The Wild Washoe Campaign to protect the amazing wilderness study areas in northern Washoe County was put on the back burner in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. We anticipate that in 2021 it may start up again and we will keep you all posted.

 

 

Pershing_Thumbnail_Take_Action.jpg Pershing County - The Pershing County bill has been reintroduced numerous times over the last number of years. There has been strong support over the years for protecting the seven areas in Pershing County as Wilderness. We anticipate that the Pershing County bill will be reintroduced in this 117th Congress. We hope that the areas proposed for Wilderness will get the protection they deserve in 2021. This bill will also help block up the crazy checkerboard land pattern along the railroad/I-80 corridor through Pershing County.

Burbank Canyons - The Douglas County bill has been reintroduced numerous times over the last decade. There has been strong support over the years for protecting Burbank Canyons as Wilderness. We anticipate that the Douglas County bill will be reintroduced in this 117th Congress. We hope that it will get the protection it deserves in 2021.
