NDOW is the state agency responsible for the preservation, restoration and management of fish and wildlife resources in Nevada. NDOW is working closely with federal land management agencies such as BLM and U.S. Forest Service. Collaboration is in high gear with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, local conservation districts, NGOs, private landowners, and many other entities to incorporate the opportunities afforded by the SGI into current planning and restoration efforts to benefit sage grouse. NRCS and NDOW have increased partnership activities in the last several years, which has enabled the hiring of several shared positions which provides a more concerted focus on sage grouse habitat preservation and restoration on both public and private lands throughout Nevada.
