Fox Range 10

Fox Range

THE PROPOSED FOX RANGE WILDERNESS (75,404 ACRES) AREA IS FOUND IMMEDIATELY NORTH OF THE PYRAMID LAKE INDIAN RESERVATION. RIPARIAN ZONES, BARREN RIDGES AND SAND DUNES ARE ALL PRESENT IN THIS PREDOMINANTLY NATURAL AREA.

THE AREA IS WITHIN THE VIEWSHED OF THE NOBLE’S ROUTE OF THE IMMIGRANT TRAIL AND THE HISTORY ASSOCIATED WITH FREMONT’S 1842-1843 ROUTE IS ALSO A SPECIAL FEATURE OF THIS AREA.

SIGN THE PETITION TO PROTECT WASHOE'S WILD PLACES

Dear Senator Reid, Senator Heller, and Congressman Amodei,

Nevada lawmakers have a history of working together to address issues facing both the rural and urban regions of our state.  A public lands bill for Washoe County is an opportunity to resolve a series of long standing major public interest issues in and around the greater Reno-Sparks area.
It will provide lasting benefits for our economy, increase opportunities for diverse recreation, and protect some of our wildest lands as wilderness. In short, it will enhance our high quality of life for now and for generations to come.
I urge you to work together with other members of the Nevada delegation to pass a Washoe County lands bill that will protect wilderness, promote economic development, and continue to improve our quality of life.
Sincerely,

ADD YOUR NAME
