There is an Opportunity!
The Ice Age Park will be centered around the famous Tule Springs paleontological site in the heart of the Upper Las Vegas Wash. This site is on the National Register of Historic Places. The Park will provide a home for an organization with four basic goals: Research, Curation and Care of Fossil Specimens, Public Access and Interpretation, and Preservation of Sites. There is now an opportunity working with the Nevada Division of State Parks, Bureau of Land Management, UNLV, Nevada Site Stewardship Program, and other State and Federal agencies, to realize our vision in the next decade.
The Las Vegas Ice Age Park Foundation was formed in 2008 to assist in the development of the Ice Age Park. Our first goal is to raise $200,000 to commission a full Feasibility Study for the project. The Las Vegas Ice Age Park Foundation is a Nevada nonprofit corporation. Through its affiliation with the Southern Nevada Conservancy, an IRS 501 (c) (3) organization, the Foundation can accept tax deductible contributions.
