Las Vegas – Today, the Bureau of Land Management released details about a major fee increase for access to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Red Rock, which is visited by more than 2.5 million visitors each year, is one of the most popular national conservation areas in the nation. Under the proposal, vehicle entry to the area will increase from the current fee of $7.00 to $15.00 in 2018, and again to $20.00 in 2023. Similar increases are being proposed for cyclists and pedestrians. In addition, new fees will be imposed on access to the Red Springs picnic area as well as to camping facilities. Congresswoman Titus is urging area residents to learn more about the proposed increases and submit comments during the public comment period which will end over the next few weeks.

“I urge residents throughout the state to participate in this public comment period. It is important to learn more and let your voice be heard about the potential changes at one of Southern Nevada’s crown jewels of recreation and conservation.”
