Long-term protection for Gold Butte is getting closer to reality, but this spectacular area may need your voice of support very soon.
If you can, support Gold Butte at the Mesquite City Council meeting Tuesday April 24th.
The Mesquite City Council may revoke its Resolution in support of Gold Butte at this council meeting, which starts at 5 p.m.
We feel this action is based on flawed assumptions about what permanent protection for Gold Butte means, and we need your voice to help make the case for conservation. Can you to attend this meeting and show your support for Gold Butte?
Making Gold Butte a National Conservation Area with Wilderness is a terrific opportunity to preserve a part of our heritage and to help foster greater tourism opportunities for Mesquite in the future.
Please RSVP to NWP to let us know if you can be at the City Council meeting on April 24 to show your support for Gold Butte. If you respond, we can provide you some key talking points for the meeting.
