Working across Nevada for more than 30 years, The Nature Conservancy protects the lands and waters upon which all life depends. From the Truckee River to the Mojave Desert, we’re working to keep the Silver State a place where both people and nature can thrive.

Our efforts are organized around four priorities:

  • LAND: We encourage smart development, ensuring our desert and sagebrush seas meet energy and resource demands while enriching lives and landscapes.
  • WATER: We ensure Nevada’s precious, life-giving rivers, streams and groundwater provide a stable supply of clean water for people and nature—today and into the future.
  • CITIES: We empower resilient cities by developing solutions that improve livability and connect Nevadans with the natural world.
  • CLIMATE: We inspire climate action by demonstrating the power of healthy natural systems to absorb carbon and reduce risks to people.
