Natural Resource Management

Shared Stewardship

Nevada has a long history of partnerships and many examples of working together at the landscape level to address wildland fires, landscape restoration and the wildland urban interface. In 2019, interagency partners signed the Nevada Shared Stewardship Agreement, committing state and federal agencies to expand our working relationships, jointly set priorities and implement projects at the appropriate scale, co-manage risk, and share resources.

Priority Landscape Areas

In 2020, the Shared Stewardship Executive Committee identified 13 priority landscapes in which to focus treatments to protect our shared values from catastrophic wildfire.
