Time to protect Gold Butte


The opening of the Gold Butte Visitors' Center in the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce offices, and your excellent coverage of the event, are serendipitously timely. You noted that David Bly's beautiful photographs in the room show the attributes that "make the area worthy of NCA designation." The Friends of Gold Butte has further proposed that, in addition to making the whole area a National Conservation Area, significant roadless areas within Gold Butte also be designated as wilderness areas.
