Did you know that areas with state and national designations bring a significant economic impact to surrounding towns? Local businesses in Las Vegas have benefited from Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (NCA), St. George businesses have benefited from Zion National Park, and even Overton and Logandale have seen economic benefits from Valley of Fire State Park.

Now it’s time for the town of Mesquite and surrounding communities to reap the potential economic benefits from a NCA with Wilderness in our own backyard–Gold Butte!
