Duckwater Shoshone Restroom
The Big Warm Springs is an important site, both culturally for the Duckwater Shoshone people and ecologically for the crucial habitat it provides birds, wildlife, and the threatened railroad valley.
The spring was restored in partnership with the Duckwater Tribe and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service several years ago. The site is a popular swim hole but had no restroom facilities. A grant from the Great Basin Heritage Area Partnership, matched with a private donation from Barrick Corporation, enabled the tribe to install restroom facilities. The new facility helped to increase protection of the spring and provided a better visitor experience.
