About Us

The Nevada Conservation League Education Fund is Nevada’s leading environmental advocacy organization. We fight to protect our community’s air, water, wildlife and promote a clean energy economy. We believe the most effective way to protect Nevada is through strategic planning, effective communication with policymakers and collaboration with a diverse group of community partners. Our organization works with a broad coalition of conservation and environmental organization’s to determine priorities for each legislative session.

There are many wonderful non-profit organizations in Nevada that seek to improve the way our natural resources are managed. The staff, board members, and many volunteers of the various non-profit conservation groups in Nevada constitute an informal community of dedicated folks who care about conservation, and who devote their time and energy to making the state a better place to live. What fuels their work is their conviction that they speak for more than themselves and their groups’ members — they speak for the vast majority of Nevada’s citizens, who want a clean environment for themselves and their children.

The Nevada Conservation League Education Fund works to unite these voices to educate Nevadans about important conservation issues and to lay the groundwork for policies that will protect our natural resources. Whether it’s growing Nevada’s clean energy economy, protecting our special places from irresponsible development or ensuring that our wildlife resources are managed according to scientific principles, you can count on the Nevada Conservation League Education Fund to be engaged in the fight and working to advance the causes that all Nevadans care about.
