Nevada Collaboration Conservation Network (NVCCN)


About the Nevada Collaboration Conservation Network (NVCCN)

NVCCN is a statewide effort to build a network that serves to promote, coordinate, and support locally-led conservation efforts. The primary objective of NVCCN is to promote effective conservation of Nevada’s ecosystems and economic viability of Nevada’s communities through grassroots conservation. NVCCN provides structure to support local, diverse stakeholder groups working to achieve conservation by incorporating best science and local knowledge through a collaborative planning and implementation approach. NVCCN serves as a bridge between various groups that are already operating at the local, state and federal levels as a way to enhance and expand locally-led conservation efforts. To find out more about NVCCN, please visit the official website at nvccn.org or read on below.

    Workshops

    The next workshop will be March 5-6, 2019 at the Nugget, 1100 Nugget Ave., Sparks, NV.

    Our primary audience for this workshop includes private landowners, public lands grazing permittees, public agency personnel, Conservation District representatives, non-governmental organizations, and others who currently participate in locally-led conservation groups or who may assist with the development of new locally led efforts.

    The workshop will focus on the following:

    • Networking and relationship building for individuals and groups interested in community-based conservation in Nevada
    • Learning about opportunities and challenges facing locally-led conservation efforts within and outside of NV
    • Developing a better understanding of project prioritization, funding and implementation (i.e., NEPA) and exploring ways to overcome associated hurdles
