        Basin and Range | Wild Nevada

        The basin and range area of southeast Nevada is a classic American landscape made up of basins (meaning valleys) and ranges (meaning mountains). The protection of this area as Basin and Range National Monument will preserve its cultural, prehistoric, and historic legacy and maintain its diverse array of natural and scientific resources for the benefit of all Americans. The broader Great Basin region extends from the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the west to the Colorado Plateau in the East. The Basin and Range area was mostly unknown to European-Americans until the 1820’s, when explorers and fur trappers first visited.
