The proposed award is the result of an unsolicited proposal from Southern Nevada Water Authority to participate in a collaborative undertaking with the Department of the Interior, the seven Colorado River Basin states, other Colorado River water users and affected parties in the development of a travelling
museum exhibition designed to enhance public understanding of the complex issues that surround the Colorado River.
The proposed Colorado River Exhibit is a unique approach to engage the public, elected officials and other decision-makers in an informed conversation to support future management strategies for the communities it serves.
The proposed project is not the subject of a current or planned contract or assistance award.
The proposed project will instill in the public the importance of the appropriate use of natural and cultural resources, encourage an attitude of stewardship and responsibility, and promote participation of a conservation ethic, all of which are advantageous to the objectives of the Take Pride in America program.
