As many of you know, Washoe County is rich with incredible open spaces that offer Northern Nevadans places for outdoor recreation, solitude, and adventure. With demanding pressures of population growth and development, now is the time for a comprehensive lands bill that can help our community sustain our quality of life, protects and expands our parks, open space, and wilderness and promotes economic opportunities.
- Join us at the public open house to express your support for protecting parks, trails, open space, and wilderness in Washoe County by passing a comprehensive public lands bill, this year.
- Ask the Washoe County Commission to urge Nevada’s Members of Congress to pass a lands bill this year. If anyone can do this Senator Reid, Senator Heller, and Congressman Amodei working together can make this happen.
