Eastern Nevada Landscape Coalition
The concept of large-scale restoration of the public lands was being discussed even before the devastating wildland fires of 1999 swept through Nevada scorching 1.7 million acres of the public lands, statewide.
Armed with the understanding that a well-organized partnership with a broad base of support could accomplish more than a single entity, a small number of federal and state agencies, and private non-profit organizations came together. Their goal - restore for present and future generations the dynamic and diverse landscapes of the Great Basin.
Thus was born in March 2001 the non-profit Eastern Nevada Landscape Coalition (ENLC), established to help facilitate the enormous but vital task of restoring health to more than 10-million acres of the public lands in eastern Nevada through the Eastern Nevada Landscape Restoration Project, which utilizes the same principles as the larger Great Basin Restoration Initiative.
