What the College does at the University of Nevada, Reno matters beyond our own campus. It is about focusing the College's limited resources toward solving urgent and vital problems Nevadans face.

Great Basin Sagebrush Restoration Fund

Sagebrush ecosystems have eroded to about 56 percent of their historical range. These ecosystems provide vital habitat for many iconic species found in the west. The sagebrush ecosystem is one of the most imperiled in the United States. To date, rehabilitation efforts are proving to be costly and do not always provide intended results. There is an opportunity to improve the efficacy and success of rehabilitation efforts.
