Assembling Land in the Pah Rah Range
The Pah Rah Range in western Nevada extends 20 miles from north to south, bounded on the east by the Truckee River and on the west by Palomino Valley, a suburb of Reno. The Pah Rah’s open spaces and lakes offer a natural respite for the growing populations of Reno and Carson City.
Much of this land is a checkerboard of private and public ownership, the result of 19th-century agreements between the federal government and the railroad companies. This pattern of alternating public and private parcels makes it difficult for public agencies to manage the land.
ALC negotiated a number of land exchanges to bring some 10,542 acres into public ownership--including critical habitat for native plants and wildlife.Donate Now
