The Desert Refuge is the largest wildlife refuge in the lower 48 states, exhibits a stunning diversity of plant and animal life and includes some of the highest value bighorn sheep habitat in the country. We must speak in a loud voice to get the bi-partisan support needed to get the resolution passed, and help convince Congress that Nevada values our wildlife, our unique desert environment, and open access to our public lands.
The Senate Natural Resources Committee will hold a public hearing at 4 pm on March 5 in Room 2144 of the Legislative Building, 401 S. Carson St. in Carson City. Southern Nevada supporters can attend the video-conferenced hearing in Las Vegas at the Grant Sawyer Building at 555 E. Washington Ave.
It’s crunch time! We want to pack these hearing rooms, so please join us if you possibly can. We need your help to stop this destructive military takeover and save the Desert National Wildlife Refuge!
