Unfortunately, the Air Force has released their proposal to erase more than 200,000 acres from the Desert National Wildlife Refuge to add to the 2.9 million acre Nevada Testing and Training Range. This proposed land withdrawal would cut off Alamo Road, a historic trail connecting Las Vegas to Alamo, Nevada, and the northest section of the Desert Refuge which joins the refuge to Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge. The Broader Sheep Range Proposed Wilderness is home to the largest population of bighorn sheep, Nevada's state animal, and would become part of bombing exercises if we allow this land withdrawal to occur.
