"Great Basin National Park"

Past President and long-time Rotary Club member Steve Brown is a member on the board of the Great Basin National Park Foundation.  Lying in the shadow of the 13,062-foot Wheeler Peak, Great Basin National Park is home to ancient bristlecone pine trees, abundant wildlife, lakes and streams, and limestone caverns, including the stunning Lehman Caves. The park is located in east-central Nevada near the Utah border and preserves a small representative portion of the Great Basin, the region between the Sierra Nevada and the Wasatch Mountains.  Given Great Basin Park’s remote location, it’s one of the darkest places in the United States and ranger-led astronomy programs are conducted year round.

Join us for a 24 minute video, Under a Desert Sky, completed in early 2013.  The video offers a unique  visit to a little known part, not only of Nevada, but of America.  Baker, Nevada which sits at the eastern entrance to the Park may be the most geographically isolated community in the United States. 

The Great Basin National Park is Nevada's only National Park.
