Happy Wetland Month everybody!
May marks the annual observance of American Wetlands Month, a time to celebrate one of nature’s most productive ecosystems. May is the month to recognize and celebrate the wonderful ways wetlands enrich the environment and our lives.
Wetlands are facing numerous challenges, such as global warming, sea level rise, increasing storm severity, drought, energy development, species declines and expansion of infrastructure, driving the need for wetland conservation.

The Basin and Range Project
We love the Basin and Range region and work to promote appreciation and respect for the area. We encourage all users to learn about, play in and protect this amazing resource.
We currently focus primarily on issues in the Nevada region of the Basin and Range, but are looking to expand soon.
