Making a Big Deal About Bighorn Sheep

A pair of desert bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni). The male looks interested — her, maybe not so much!

As a convenient follow-up to our report on the current administration’s mission to shrink the size of Gold Butte National Monument, we’re excited to share a special information session put on by Friends of Gold Butte!

Join them this Wednesday, December 13th as researcher and author Mark Jorgensen showcases Nevada’s own desert bighorn sheep alongside a multitude of stunning photographs from his book, “Desert Bighorn Sheep: Wilderness Icon”.

It’s a great chance to learn more about one of our state’s hardiest species, whose existence in the harsh desert landscapes of the American southwest is a testament to life’s ability to survive in some truly inhospitable environments. Perhaps you’ll get to see a perfectly-timed picture of two rams clashing their massive horns together at 30 mph!

Wednesday, December 13th at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.

Mesquite Community Theatre
