RENO, Nev. (AP) - Recreation activities in the Hungry Valley have been scaled back after 13,000 acres of land were given to the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony in October.

KTVN-TV reported (https://bit.ly/2piVrDg ) Tuesday that residents are finding their usual shooting and off-roading activities have been limited.

The colony’s public information officer says the severely polluted areas in the valley is what led to laws banning firearms and dumping.

The officer says the land will not be exclusively available to tribal members and not all recreation is banned. But she says “a few people who couldn’t follow the rules have spoiled it for everybody.”

She says peaceful recreation like riding horses, riding bikes, walking dogs and backpacking will still be allowed.
