Due to drying vegetation, increasing daytime temperatures and some human-caused fires the Bureau of Land Management, Carson City District Office; the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Western Nevada Agency; Bureau of Reclamation, California - Great Basin Region; Nevada Division of Forestry, Public Domain Allotments; and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge Complex announce the implementation of fire restrictions on all lands under their jurisdiction effective Friday, July 29, at 12:01 a.m. and lasting until further notice.
As the warm summer sun entices us to venture outdoors, it is essential to prioritize fire prevention and responsible recreation. Uncontrolled outdoor fires pose a significant threat to our forests, wildlife, and communities. Organizations such as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the US Forest Service, the Nevada Division of Forestry (NDF), Nevada Outdoor School, Leave No Trace, and Tread Lightly! work tirelessly to safeguard our natural landscapes and educate the public about responsible outdoor practices.
