Where the Wild Places Are: Lahontan Cutthroat Trout Wilderness Study Area

The Lahontan Cutthroat Trout Natural Area Instant Study Area was established in 1973 to ensure the preservation of this threatened species of fish, in its natural habitat and to maximize spawning areas (photo by Brian Beffort)

Situated on the northern slopes of the Black Rock Range, the open sage and grass slopes of this area are cut with aspen-filled drainages (photo by Brian Beffort)

The aspen provide cool and shady exploring, and the open slopes above provide sweeping views over the High Rock Canyon country to the west, toward the Sheldon Antelope Refuge to the north, and to the Pine Forest Range to the northeast (photo by Brian Beffort)

Pine Forest Bill Introduced!!

Alder Creek by Scott Smith

On November 2, 2011, U.S. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV), Congresswoman Shelley Berkley (D-NV), Congressman Joe Heck (R-NV) and Congressman Mark Amodei (R-NV) today introduced the Pine Forest Recreation Enhancement Act. This bill is the result of over two years of cooperation between conservation organizations like Friends of Nevada Wilderness, sportsmen and hunting clubs, and government agencies. 26,000 acres in northern Nevada will be designated as protected wilderness under the bill.
