Gold Butte is located between the Grand Canyon Parashant National Monument, Arizona, and Lake Mead National Recreation Area, just south of the City of Mesquite. It is named for the historic mining town and tent city of 1,000 miners in the early 1900’s. The town of Gold Butte, long abandoned, now attracts visitors interested in early pioneer history, ranching and ghost towns.
Friends of Gold Butte would love to have you join our growing group of volunteers. We can always use help:
Many groups and individuals have been working for the protection of Gold Butte’s extraordinary resources for many years. The time has come for the Gold Butte National Conservation Area and Wilderness designation, and we need you to take action now.
Over the last ten years, support for protecting Gold Butte has grown steadily. And recently, we’ve experienced a real groundswell of support among diverse supporters.
The City of Mesquite, Clark County Commission and the Paiute tribes have all passed resolutions of support and send positive messages to our representatives about the overwhelming need to introduce legislation this year.
