Summary

A parcel of land situated in the Springs Preserve, Las Vegas Valley, Nevada, has been

designated as the future site of an interpretive center. Although the site in question is located in

an area devoid of vegetation, the Las Vegas Valley Water District aims to ensure that animal

habitats in the region are not affected by the construction. In order to maintain the fox

population in The Preserve, ten seed samples extracted from gray or red fox scat were

submitted for identification. The seed identifications will serve to interpret what the foxes are

eating in order to maintain, recreate, or provide access to the food source, and, subsequently

assure the fox community remains an active part of The Springs Preserve.
