LVWCC celebrates 25th anniversary

The Las Vegas Wash Coordination Committee (LVWCC) celebrated its 25th anniversary with the installation of a commemorative bench along the Las Vegas Wash near the Powerline Crossing bridge, where the Wetlands Loop, Lake Mead Parkway and River Mountains Loop trails come together.

The LVWCC worked closely with the Clark County Wetlands Park to select the bench location and with its vendor to ensure cohesiveness with the rest of the park.

The new bench includes the LVWCC 25-year anniversary logo inset in its backrest and will serve as a convenient resting spot and a scenic observation point of the Wash.
