As members of The Conservation Alliance, we’re excited to celebrate the designation of sacred Avi Kwa Ame as a national monument! In March, the Biden Administration chose to honor Avi Kwa Ame, the Mojave name for Spirit Mountain, and protect over 500,000 acres of sacred land in Southern Nevada. This designation is Nevada’s 4th national monument and protects sacred lands for 12 tribes, threatened species, and outdoor recreation opportunities.
This designation came alongside the naming of the Castner Range as a protected place as well.
We are proud to support The Conservation Association grantee SHIFT Monumental and congratulate their advocacy efforts in protecting this landscape! #HonorAviKwaAme
