The City of Boulder City and the Nevada Department of Wildlife recently entered into an agreement to provide educational wildlife interpretive opportunities regarding our Big Horn Sheep Population at Hemenway Park.
This agreement represents an amazing opportunity for the City of Boulder City and Nevada Department of Wildlife to develop a relationship that will address the educational needs of tourists, school children, the residents of Boulder City, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan area.
Many visitors from all over the State of Nevada, Utah, Arizona and California also frequent the park during the spring and summer months to see these majestic creatures.
Six 24” x 36” panels mounted on low profile signs will be purchased and designed by the Nevada Department of Wildlife featuring information regarding the big horn sheep including the history of sheep in Nevada, sheep habitat, human impacts and wildlife rules and regulations. The Nevada Department of Wildlife will also be responsible for maintaining, replacing, changing, updating or improving the displays at the park. The City of Boulder City will be responsible for the installation of the six panels and keeping them clean during the year.
I’m very happy with our new partnership with the Nevada Department of Wildlife to provide educational opportunities regarding our Big Horn Sheep population to our residents and visitors at Hemenway Park.
The design of the interpretive signs is nearly complete and installation of the new signs is anticipated during the upcoming summer months.
