2020 Year In Review
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.
In 2020, we began planting 30,000 trees along the Amargosa River to help birds and wildlife adapt to a changing climate. Learn more about our work to protect habitat along the Amargosa River

We need to involve the next generation in the work of protecting, preserving and restoring the nature of Nevada to ensure it's continued in the future. See how we are helping to train the next generation of conservationists
We are tackling climate change with natural climate solutions and smart energy planning. Learn more about our climate mitigation and adaptation work
We are working to make sure there is groundwater for generations to come for the hundreds of species and three million Nevadans who depend on it. Learn more about how we are studying and protecting Nevada's groundwater-dependent ecosystems
We are innovating in science to help with recovery from wildfires and protect wildlife on the move in a changing climate. Read about Monsoon Passage, a climate-resilient landscape we have mapped in Nevada.
In partnership with 10 other organizations, we are creating an adequate supply of locally adapted native seeds that can meet Nevada’s restoration and rehabilitation needs. Learn more about the Nevada Native Seed Partnership
