Save Lake Mead-backup

Dear Concerned Boater / Moorage Customer / Lake Mead User / Enjoyer of Lake Mead NRA,

Please take a few minutes to read – Lake Mead needs your help!

Boating is the cornerstone of recreation on Lake Mead. The National Park Service is always planning for future management and use. NPS is currently seeking public comment on a series of questions that have been released. They have also released a schedule of public meetings.

We must speak up, answer these questions and join these meetings to keep Lake Mead a viable and loved future recreation resource. Lake Mead is the lifeline of our boating community in Southern Nevada, we as boaters must come together to have our voices heard that boating is essential and access needs to be maintained now and in the future.
