In 2014, The Nature Conservancy in Nevada celebrates 30 years of conserving Nevada's land and water for people and nature.
With our science-based, innovative solutions and on-the-ground approaches, we’ve conserved more than three million acres and 26 miles of rivers and streams through restoration, protection and easements, public access and collaboration.
We didn’t do it alone: Our success depends on the partnerships and commitments of landowners, partner organizations, supporters and people like you. Today, we have more than 5,000 member households in Nevada and more than 1,000 volunteers who help us fulfill our mission.
Building on our past – Focusing on our future
We’ve built a strong conservation legacy in Nevada. Our accomplishments includes helping to protect many of Nevada’s most popular and iconic places like Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge, Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, and the Ruby Marshes.
In our 30th year, The Nature Conservancy in Nevada is building on this legacy and focusing on the conservation Nevada needs – now and for our future.
We're working to:
- Protect freshwater in the Eastern Sierra (the Truckee, Carson and Walker Rivers) and at Independence Lake
- Ensure a healthy Colorado River for 33 million people in seven states and two countries by working with governments, communities and partner organizations
- Develop strategies for balanced energy development in the Mojave Desert
- Conserve the wide-open spaces of Nevada that make up Sagebrush Ecosystems to ensure that the wildlife and people that depend on them can thrive.
Please join us in celebrating all that you have helped make possible during our last 30 years, and help us get to work on our next 30 - and beyond!
