Abstract

  • Preserve America Steward awarded to Public Lands Institute and ICSST
  • CSSP awarded Las Vegas annual “Historical Preservation Award”

Twenty new volunteers participated in site survey training and rock art recording classes. Additional classes are being prepared for early July 2010 in gps navigation and map and compass training for site steward coordinators who will assist with training to general stewards.

All newly accrued stewards have been introduced to sites in Clark County. Locations in the Gold Butte area have been successfully reinforced after a decrease of eight volunteers due to difficult economic conditions in Mesquite. Regional Coordinators have been instrumental in maintaining steward levels in spite of difficult economic and political issues surrounding Gold Butte and its emergence as a probable National Conservation Area.
