  • Geothermal Energy in Nevada: Unlocking Renewable Power and Economic Growth
    In a significant move toward achieving the Biden Administration’s clean energy goals, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently leased 96,605 acres of land in Nevada for geothermal energy production. The lease is part of the BLM’s broader efforts to attain 25 gigawatts of solar, wind, and geothermal production on public lands by 2025. Nevada’s abundant geothermal activity can be attributed to the state’s unique geological characteristics. Dr. James Faulds, the State Geologist and Director of Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology at the University of Nevada, Reno, explains that Nevada experiences a pulling apart and stretching of the Earth’s crust, resulting in the creation of faults. These faults enable fluids to flow more readily, making Nevada a geothermal hotbed. – Energy Portal
  • Lake Tahoe Students Create Pollinator Garden
    The students visited five pollinator gardens throughout the Reno/Sparks area, meeting with several different experts to learn about how plants grow and survive. Armed with this information, they have now designed their very own pollinator habitat which is being built on campus this school year. The local organizations and experts who helped make this all possible include: Barb Fenney and Ray Hopper from Help Save the Bees Foundation, which helped Reno and Sparks both become Bee Cities, the University of Nevada, Reno Entomology department professors, who hosted third graders and helped in their research, and many more. - Sierra Sun
  • Taylor Creek Interruptions Likely Impacted Kokanee Salmon Reproduction, but Fish Expert Warns Alternative Could Have Been Worse
    On Nov. 3, 2023, the U.S. Forestry Service temporarily interrupted the water flow to Taylor Creek from the Fallen Leaf Lake dam for three days. This raised concern from community members regarding the spawning kokanee salmon and the future of their eggs. The University of Nevada, Reno Professor Sudeep Chandra says the flow into the lake also attracts kokanee to the stream for spawning and that while this interruption could impact reproduction, another concern is ensuring warm water invasive fish species don’t move across the ecosystem, becoming fully established in Taylor Creek and Fallen Leaf Lake. - Tahoe Daily Tribune
