- 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.
- UNLV has completed and submitted an analysis of fencing on the 40 acres and around the 160 acres. BLM was provided with a map of the fencing. On the west side of the 40 acres, fencing was repaired in two locations along the powerline.
