Friends of Black Rock High Rock Charity Profile
The Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area (NCA), is a unit of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS). The NCA is located in northwest Nevada, and was established by legislation in 2000. It is a unique combination of desert playas, narrow canyons, and mountainous areas.
The Great Basin encompasses most of Nevada, the lower third of Idaho, the western half of Utah, the southeast corner of Oregon, and a small portion of northeastern California. The name comes from the geography -- water is not able to flow out and remains in the basin. The Great Basin is a rugged land serrated by hundreds of mountain ranges, dried by wind and sun, and blessed with spectacular skies and scenic landscapes. The Great Basin is sometimes called ďthe Big Empty.Ē It is big, but it isnít empty. Plants, animals and people have adapted to this region.
