Protecting a Recreational Wonderland
ALC has left a legacy of land protection in the Carson Range of the Sierra Nevada, between the urban centers of Lake Tahoe City and Reno. The striking scenery, dramatic peaks, high valleys and gentle mesas offer many recreational opportunities for hikers, campers, equestrians and anglers.
With funding from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund, ALC helped acquire thousands of acres for the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.
Here lives one of Nevada’s last remaining populations of black bears as well as mountain lions and bobcats. Pine martens and other small mammals, reptiles and birds can be seen in the area. Endangered Lahontan cutthroat trout thrive in the region’s snowmelt-fed streams, while the endangered Paiute cutthroat trout lives nowhere else in the world.Donate Now
