Nevada Collaborative Conservation Network Fact Sheet

Nevada is a state where people with different individual, organizational and institutional perspectives work together to complete locally-led conservation projects across working landscapes. In doing so, they provide a wealth and diversity of thriving and sustainable ecosystems for the species, recreation, and businesses/industries and families/communities that depend on them.

The Nevada Collaborative Conservation Network (NVCCN) is a state-wide 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 in Nevada.
