Hot Spot

Six Mile Cove 2019

Lake Mohave, NV

While Lake Mead National Recreation Area attracts visitors pursuing a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities, the sandy beaches and cool water of southern Lake Mohave are particularly popular with families seeking relaxation and relief from the desert heat. Many of these visitors are not outdoor enthusiasts in the traditional sense and may only be vaguely aware of the delicate ecosystems which surround them.  The severe and adverse human impact occurring at 6 Mile Cove is not the result of conscious indifference but rather a consequence of limited understanding of best practices which can be addressed and reduced through education and outreach. Leave No Trace Hot Spot programming at this location will work towards effective education of a large volume of visitors and allow them to begin to draw meaningful connections between recreation and stewardship.
