About the Elko District - Elko County lies in the northeastern corner of Nevada. Its county seat of Elko is a bustling town of about 21,000 people, with an additional 15,000 living in the immediate area. Elko is approximately 230 miles west of Salt Lake City, Utah, 295 miles northeast of Reno, Nevada, and 255 miles south of Boise, Idaho. It is the largest city for over 130 miles in all directions, making it, as its city motto states, "The Heart of Northeast Nevada."

The Elko District Office encompasses 12.3 million acres and consists of two field offices; Wells and Tuscarora. The Wells Field Office staff manages a little more than 4 million acres in the eastern portion of the Elko District while the Tuscarora Field Office staff is responsible for 3.1 million acres in the western half of the District. Both field office staffs are co-located at the Elko District Office.

The Elko District is located in the Great Basin. Climate varies throughout the Great Basin by elevation, latitude, and other factors. Higher elevations tend to be cooler and receive more precipitation. Most of the basin experiences a semi-arid or arid climate with warm summers and cold winters. However, some of the mountainous areas in the basin are high enough in elevation to experience an Alpine climate. Due to the region's altitude and aridity, most areas in the Great Basin experience a substantial temperature variation between the days and nights.

Maps of the Elko District can be purchased at the BLM District Office, located at 3900 E. Idaho Street, Monday through Friday 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
