  • CLARK COUNTY WETLANDS PARK
    The Clark County Wetlands Park is the largest park in Clark County. It is on the east side of the Las Vegas valley and runs from the various water treatment plants near the natural beginning of the Las Vegas Wash to where the wash flows under Lake Las Vegas and later into Lake Mead. Installing native plants and large pieces of demolished construction debris is stabilizing the sides of the wash. Some of the native plants, especially those in the areas of standing water, also help to purify the water by removing various pollutants as the slow moving water provides these plants with nourishment. The displays within the park attempt to show visitors how the wash looked before major settlement occurred in the valley and how much impact people have had on the environment. The park has a visitor’s center and miles of walking paths.

    LAS VEGAS WASH
    The Las Vegas Wash is a 12-mile long natural drainage channel for the Las Vegas Valley. Before development in the valley above the wash, it was able to contain the flows from rainwater that fell in the valley and hills above. When the first sewage treatment plant went on line, the flows began increasing to the point that the channel expanded in size as the increased flows eroded the wash's walls.

    LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA
    Lake Mead National Recreation Area is located in southern Nevada and northwestern Arizona. The centerpieces of the National Recreation Area are it's two large reservoirs: Lake Mead and Lake Mohave. These lakes cater to boaters, swimmers, sunbathers, and fishermen while the surrounding desert rewards hikers, wildlife photographers, and roadside sightseers. Three of America's four desert ecosystems — the Mojave Desert, the Great Basin desert, and the Sonoran Desert — meet in Lake Mead NRA. As a result, this seemingly barren area contains a surprising variety of plants and animals, some of which may be found nowhere else in the world. The Hoover Dam, which was completed in 1936 creating Lake Mead, is located within Lake Mead NRA. The United States Bureau of Reclamation manages tours of the dam and the Hoover Dam Visitor Center.
