    Description

    Providing for appropriate, diverse, and high quality recreation use of southern Nevada’s lands and ensuring responsible visitor use is an ongoing challenge for Federal agencies that manage much of this land (fig. 1.1). This chapter examines recreation on these Federal lands and addresses Sub-goal 2.4 in the SNAP Science Research Strategy (table 1.1). The demands for various types of recreational opportunities are discussed and the ways in which Federal agencies can provide quality recreational experiences without compromising resources are explored. Also discussed are current visitor use patterns and services provided by the designated recreation areas in southern Nevada.
