This water based allotment is located in the south central portion of the Ely District BLM, approximately 60 miles northwest of Caliente, Nevada (Map #1). Most of the allotment is located within Lincoln County; however, the far northern tip of the allotment is located in Nye County. It is situated in the central part of Garden Valley, within the Garden Valley (#185) and Coal Valley (#188) Watersheds, and encompasses approximately 42,172 acres of public land.
The Worthington Mountains extend into the far southeast corner of the allotment. The Worthington Mountain Wilderness Area is vicinal to the allotment, however no wilderness or wilderness study areas, or portions thereof, are found within the allotment. Approximately 180 acres of private (patented) land are located within the extreme northwest part of the allotment.
The allotment is neither located within a Wild Horse Herd Management Area (HMA) nor within desert tortoise habitat.
An evaluation of rangeland monitoring data and rangeland health will be conducted for the Cottonwood Allotment. This data will be summarized in a Standards Determination Document that will be provided for public review at a later date.
