Letter from Our State Director, Mauricia M.M. Baca

Thank you so much for your support of The Nature Conservancy. The challenges of the past year have reminded us how special the nature of Nevada is, and how important it is to protect our lands and waters and the people and wildlife who depend on them. In spite of 2020’s challenges, with your support, we had a busy and productive year, conserving lands, developing new partnerships and innovations in science to help protect wildlife and improve post-wildfire recovery, and contributing to climate and water solutions in the Silver State.

This year has also reminded us how resilient Nevadans are, and what we can achieve when we work together. We look forward to continuing to tackle our state’s greatest challenges through science, collaboration, and innovation, in 2021 and beyond.
