Dear fellow Nevadans,
The board of Scenic Nevada proudly presents Nevada’s LAST CHANCE Scenic Places, a booklet featuring 13 threatened landscapes and historic places in danger of being permanently lost due to insensitive public policy, neglect, lack of funding or inappropriate development.
This booklet contains photos and descriptions of each site, the threat and possible solutions. The goal is to spotlight and try to save theses special places that are locally treasured for their natural beauty of discinctive character.
Nevada’s LAST CHANCE Scenic Places is being circulated statewide to the media, the state legislature, local governments, county and city planners and others. We hope this booklet becomes a helpful reference for all concerned during possible future discussions of these scenic places.
Scenic Nevada is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization that works to preserve, protect and enhance the scenic beauty of Nevada. Its principal activity is to educate the general public on the economic, social and cultural benefits of scenic preservation.
After reading this booklet (find more about it on www.scenicnevada.org) we hope it inspires you to help protect one of Nevada’s most precious resources–its LAST CHANCE Scenic Places.
Doug Smith, Chairman of the Board and Lori Wray, President
