Public Involvement Opportunity
Three public scoping meetings will be held. The first will be at the BLM Southern Nevada
District Office, Las Vegas, NV on November 8th, 2010 and 5:00 pm. A second meeting will be
at the Moapa Justice Court building on November 9th, 2010 at 6:00 pm. A third meeting will be
at the Mesquite City Hall training room on November 10th, 2010 at 5:00 pm. The purpose of
these meetings is for the public to provide input to the BLM regarding issues and management of the Arrow Canyon Wilderness. All who are interested in participating are encouraged to attend.

Those who are interested but unable to attend the scoping meetings may also send written
comments during the 30 day comment period to Mark Tanaka-Sanders, Wilderness Planner, at
Ivwilderness~nv.blm.gov by the closing date of this comment period on November 19th, 2010.
A decision by the District Manager is expected to be rendered by November 2012 with start of

Sounds like they have to bring it up to the wilderness standard before they can call it wilderness, because it's not wilderness.

The United States Government Definition of Wilderness comes from the Wilderness Act of 1964. Here it is:

"A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain. An area of wilderness is further defined to mean in this Act an area of undeveloped Federal land retaining its primeval character and influence, without permanent improvements or human habitation, which is protected and managed so as to preserve its natural conditions and which (1) generally appears to have been affected primarily by the forces of nature, with the imprint of man's work substantially unnoticeable; (2) has outstanding opportunities for solitude or a primitive and unconfined type of recreation; (3) has at least five thousand acres of land or is of sufficient size as to make practicable its preservation and use in an unimpaired condition; and (4) may also contain ecological, geological, or other features of scientific, educational, scenic, or historical value."
