“National Monument Proposed For Southern Nevada Tribal Lands”

“RENO, Nev. — Local tribes and national conservation groups are lobbying to establish a fourth national monument in southern Nevada that would preserve Indigenous cultural sites and critical environmental habitat.

The proposed Avi Kwa Ame National Monument would protect nearly 600 square miles (1,553 square kilometers) east of the Mojave Desert in southern Clark County.

The Wilderness Society, the National Parks Conservation Association and local tribes are working together to achieve the land designation, according to the Reno Gazette Journal.”
