Hosted by the Friends of Gold Butte, this talk brings Amy Gilreath back to the area (her last presentation was standing-room only) to share some of her expertise and photographs of one of the West's most remarkable areas. Friends of Gold Butte and the Nevada Wilderness Project are working to see Gold Butte protected as a National Conservation Area and Wilderness--legal designations that will bring this area better management, greater law enforcement and new educational stewardship. The area is rich with pre-historic rock art, petroglyphs and other evidence of early habitation by Native Americans. Click here to find out more about Gold Butte.
