Two decades ago, Congress preserved the mountain — called Avi Kwa Ame (ah-VEE-kwah-may) in Mojave — and 33,000 acres around it as wilderness. Now the Biden administration is readying a proclamation that could put roughly 450,000 acres — spanning almost the entire triangle at the bottom of the Nevada map — off limits to development under the 1906 Antiquities Act.

President Biden will commit on Wednesday at the White House Tribal Nations Summit to protecting the area, according to a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the decision was not yet public.


The transformation of this 700-square-mile wedge between California and Arizona is likely to rank as the largest act of land conservation that Biden will undertake this term. The designation enjoys the support of tribes, local officials, environmental groups and the rural business community but has frustrated some renewable energy advocates, who warn it could undercut the nation’s climate goals.

This would add a large wildlife corridor between Lake Mead NRA and the Mojave protected areas.

Nothing really out there....... Years ago I did a lot of 4 wheeling and looking at mining relics around that area. Causing a dilema....wind and solar power or preserving vast expanses.....

"Nothing" if you're not a Native American or wildlife conservationist. There is plenty of other public land available in NV for solar and wind farm leasing that is closer to major cities like Las Vegas.

Or if states and cities had any form of sense every rooftop in those sunny cities would be all solar panels.......No need to destroy the deserts.
