Over the past year BLM Nevada managers have been working with stakeholders who use and enjoy the public lands in Nevada to find ways to cope with drought throughout the state. We will continue to work collaboratively to find solutions that allow for resource recovery and meet the needs of the many hunters, ranchers, hikers, mining industry, wildlife enthusiasts and others who rely on these lands.
We have made no final decisions on the allocations in Argenta Allotment on the Battle Mountain District. We will continue to work with grazing permittees to find common ground in grazing decisions for the upcoming season.
Drought conditions continue to persist across much of the western United States, and much of Nevada is experiencing severe to extreme drought conditions. These conditions have stressed all resources on the public lands making grazing throughout most of Nevada unsustainable at permitted levels. We will continue to work with livestock permittees to develop temporary adjustments in livestock use in order to ensure the long-term health and productivity of the public lands.

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.
