Abstract

  • UNLV provides stewardship of Walking Box Ranch (WBR) by providing a caretaker who oversees the property, facilitating use of the property by researchers and educators, developing a use and research policy for the property, and coordinating these activities with BLM and in accordance with TNC restrictions.
  • UNLV currently addresses security issues for the property through the presence of the caretaker and two Metro Officers who reside on the property in two recreational vehicles.
  • Visits to the ranch this quarter included: Dr. Diedra Clemente, history professor for UNLV, visited the ranch to determine research possibilities for students in the history department and UNLV Educational Outreach held a class on watercolor painting at the ranch with 17 people in attendance.
  • UNLV notified BLM that the well was no longer producing water and assisted BLM with the repairs
  • UNLV learned that the monthly water test indicated the presence of colliform in the water and assisted BLM with retesting the water. Additional tests did not detect colliform
