- 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 three Metro Officers who reside on the property in two recreational vehicles, in rotation. UNLV has prepared a draft document outlining this agreement that will be signed by UNLV and participating officers and this agreement is now under review by UNLV solicitors.
- UNLV completed a draft Premises-use Process, which will define how UNLV receives and submits requests to conduct work on the 40-acre headquarters site to BLM. This procedure is hereby forwarded to BLM for review and approval.
- UNLV has completed a draft inspection document that guides daily inspection of the ranch by the caretaker. This document is hereby forwarded to BLM for review and approval.
