Forest Action Plan

Threats to Priority Landscapes in Nevada

Nevada’s Forest, Range and Watershed Action Plan lists eight significant issues or threats to the state’s natural resources and identifies 22 priority landscapes where the Nevada Division of Forestry (NDF) will focus effort. It also provides strategies for how the NDF and cooperators will address their mitigation and management actions collaboratively through a Shared Stewardship approach.

To focus attention and investment of time, energy and resources into geographic areas of the state, the Priority Landscapes section provides a comprehensive geospatial analysis using 29 available data sets selected for their ability to address threats to ecosystems, values at risk, and collaborative opportunities across the state. The resulting priority map was used to designate 22 Priority Landscapes with similar geography, hydrography, ecosystems, and other characteristics that account for approximately 60 percent of the land area in Nevada.

Best Management Practices

Nevada’s best management practices (BMPs) program is regulatory for some water quality BMPs. The agencies responsible for BMPs policy development are the Nevada Division of Forestry and the Nevada Conservation Commission.
