A dozen federal and state agencies met in Genoa on Wednesday to sign the Nevada Agreement for Recreation Shared Stewardship.
Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak said the agreement is a major victory for all families and visitors to Nevada, which bolsters collective efforts to protect the environment, fight climate change, strengthen recreation and ecotourism efforts, and ensure access for all will encourage people to take advantage of the state’s leisure facilities.
