Executive Director, Rayette Martin and Volunteer, Brooke Weyandt removed scratched graffiti from an archaeological site at the request of the Bureau of Land Management. The scratched human-like figure was near a number of pictographs (rock painting). The site is seen from the highway so it gets hit with vandalism fairly regularly. NVFCP even made a video of spray paint graffiti removal at the sites in 2021. The video can be seen on NVFCP's YouTube Channel here.
It is important that the public does not try to remove graffiti. Oftentimes well intentioned individuals make the graffiti more difficult to remove and they may not be able to see faded pictographs or petroglyphs (rock pecking). Please report any graffiti at archaeological sites on public lands to the Nevada Site Stewardship Program's online reporting page here.
