The Boulder City Conservation Easement Area (BCCE) conserves just over 87,268 acres of Mojave Desert scenery for the preservation of Desert Tortoise and other species’ habitat. This large expanse of Mojave Desert landscape is meant to be enjoyed both by the public and the multiple species it aims to protect. In order to do so, please only travel on the routes designated by “Open Designated Road’’ or head over to the Boulder City Dry Lake Bed just outside the BCCE boundaries.
The BCCE shares boundaries with other natural areas, such as BLM Wilderness and Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Please be aware of land use rule changes as you leave the easement area. Some of these areas prohibit the use of OHVs. However, feel free to explore on foot! There are no facilities within the BCCE. Stop by Veterans Memorial Park on Buchanan Blvd for picnic areas and restroom facilities before a fun day of riding.
