Nevada Wilderness Project
558,000 acres protected

The Nevada Wilderness Project used Conservation Alliance support to help secure Wilderness protection for 558,000 acres of federal land in White Pine County, Nevada. The White Pine effort adds Wilderness areas to the rugged eastern Nevada county, including an expansion of Wilderness lands in Great Basin National Park. Since 2000, NWP has led the effort to protect more than 2.5 million acres in Nevada.
