Public comment is sought at Red Rock Canyon National Recreation Area


The Bureau of Land Management Southern Nevada District is seeking public input to help guide future plans for the Calico Basin area of ​​the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

The BLM is seeking comments on its proposed Recreation Area Management Plan and Environmental Analysis for the Calico Basin region. The comment period opened on Monday and will run until December 8.

“This plan proposes to enhance and improve recreational experiences in the Calico Basin,” said Josh Travers, assistant manager of the Red Rock/Sloan field office. “This will be done by formally identifying permitted uses of the trails; identify climbing areas; improved signage and visitor information; and provide a long-term sustainable financing program for the basin.

The management plan will guide future development and provide management direction for recreational resources in the Calico Basin Recreation Area, which is within the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area northwest of Las Vegas.

An online public meeting is scheduled for November 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. More information can be found at
