What is The Amargosa?

From its vital natural resources to its storied history, the Amargosa Basin is a truly special place. This beautiful desert landscape, nestled between Death Valley and the Mojave Natural Reserve, is home to diverse plant species, endemic and threatened wildlife, vibrant communities, and significant Native American and European history and culture. It is often called the crown jewel of the Mojave Desert because it also has a unique feature rarely found in the desert: a beautiful river supporting abundant resources and lively ecosystems. It is truly a place worth protecting for generations to come.
