Must protect Gold Butte now

Biggest growth market for tourism to Las Vegas

We passed along stories from generation to generation

This is the kind of place you want to see preserved for your children, your children’s children and generations to come. Visitors from around the world will have the opportunity to see this place too.

Should not be a bi-partisan area.

Keep your damned hands off public lands
