Nevada Outdoor Business Coalition Statement re: President Biden’s Announcement

NEVADA. – In support of today’s announcement by President Biden indicating his intent to designate Avi Kwa Ame a national monument, the Nevada Outdoor Business Coalition released the following statement:

“As entrepreneurs, business owners and leaders of the outdoor recreation industry in Nevada, we support the designation of Avi Kwa Ame as a National Monument. The protection of Avi Kwa Ame (or Spirit Mountain) would ensure that nearly 450,000 acres of public land provide continued access for endless recreational opportunities, encourage tourism, increase patronage at local businesses, and will further promote Nevada as a desirable place to work and play. 

This designation is not only the right thing to do for our public lands, it will also benefit Nevada’s growing outdoor industry.  Nevada’s outdoor recreation economy supports 49,000 jobs and generates $3.9 billion for the state in annual economic activity. That’s why over 100 Nevada businesses signed our letter in support of designating Avi Kwa Ame as our state’s next national monument.”
