Kern Mountains & Blue Mass Scenic Area Restoration – Phase One
Passage of the White Pine County Conservation, Recreation, and Development Act included legislation to fund the Eastern Nevada Landscape Restoration Project through SNPLMA. The Kern Mountains project was funded in 2009, treating approximately 3,300 acres of pinyon-pine, juniper, and decedent sagebrush to restore mountain mahogany, and mountain shrub and sagebrush communities. The project improves watershed health and wildlife habitat. SNPLMA is currently funding Phase II.
