Cottonwood Ranch Meadow Enhancement Project
Elko County, Nevada
The Reno Fish and Wildlife Office Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program will work with the Cottonwood Ranch in Elko County, Nevada, to improve meadows in the floodplain of Cottonwood Creek to benefit both wildlife and livestock. Three phases are targeted to improve soil and mesic function: 1) soil amendments, 2) planting cover crops, and 3) native plantings. Phase I is supported by this project to bring the soil chemistry back into a balance that will support a native meadow ecosystem.
