Ely District

Eastern Nevada Landscape Restoration Project

The Eastern Nevada Landscape Restoration Project (ENLRP) aims to restore health to approximately 10-million acres of the public lands administered by the BLM Ely District.  ENLRP utilizes the same principles as the Great Basin Restoration Initiative (GBRI), ensuring that today’s best scientific practices are applied through the process of adaptive management, allowing adjustments to be made.  Like GBRI, ENLRP implements such objectives as protecting healthy, functioning ecosystems while restoring degraded landscapes that have a high potential for restoration.  The benefits to restoring ecosystem health include watershed stability, and vegetative species diversity and composition - critical to providing for the long-term sustainability of native wildlife species and more.

The BLM Ely District prepared the Ely Resource Management Plan (RMP) to help facilitate ENLRP.  The ELY RMP provides management direction for all district programs in the planning area, as well as fulfilling obligations set forth by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
 
Partnering with the BLM Ely District is the non-profit Eastern Nevada Landscape Coalition.
