Nevada Collaboration Conservation Network (NVCCN)


About the Nevada Collaboration Conservation Network (NVCCN)

The State of Nevada, the US Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management are working together to use the Nevada Collaboration Conservation Network (NVCCN) to achieve effective conservation of sagebrush ecosystems in Nevada in conjunction with implementation of the sage-grouse plan amendments. The NVCCN empowers both stakeholders and land managers to cooperatively resolve conflict and build a collaborative position whether the discussion is at the local level, or when appropriate, referred to the Governor’s Sagebrush Ecosystem Council. The roles of Local Area Working Groups, agency field managers, and the Sagebrush Ecosystem Council are described in the NVCCN Concept Paper. 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
