Improving Climate Resilience of Sagebrush Ecosystem Communities in the Great Basin
Partnering with the Nevada Department of Wildlife, this project focuses on climate resilience of the ecosystem at four sites across northern Nevada. This includes pinyon-juniper removal, protective fencing, seeding with native forbs and grasses, and in-situ restoration for the benefit of greater sage-grouse, mule deer, other sagebrush obligate species, and federally-endangered fish. A portion of this project also supports the implementation of Candidate Conservation Agreement with Assurances for greater sage-grouse through plan development, outreach, and delivery of conservation measures.
