Western Nevada Greenprint

TCF summarizes their role in assisting the Nevada Land Trust by streamlining and organizing the group's conservation efforts in western Nevada. Primarily, NLT aims to protect dwindling greater sage grouse habitat, but focuses its conservation efforts on other native species, among them the pronghorn antelope. A published report is not publicly available; however, the project resulted in the development of new planning tools for NLT, a strategic Conservation Plan, and resource maps of the region.
