Strategic Conservation Plans For Nevada

The Nevada Land Conservancy asked us to help think strategically about western Nevada, the Sierra Front range and areas along border states of California and Oregon—a vast expanse covering 30 million acres. We’re producing a series of planning tools to help the group balance day-to-day efforts to protect land with a long-term vision for the region’s future.
Our Approach To Conservation In Nevada
The federal government owns more than 86% of land in Nevada—the highest amount of any state in the country. With so much land already in public ownership, it’s critical that conservation is strategic. We work with federal partners to consolidate their land holdings in a way that benefits the public and the environment. Our strategic planning efforts are designed to further improve coordination among federal, state and other national nonprofit organizations.
