Eastern Sierra Land Trust announces funding pool for land sales
Eastern Sierra Land Trust has announced an $8 million funding pool now available to ranchers in the Bi-State area of eastern California and western Nevada who want to pursue projects that will improve sage-grouse habitat and water quality on their land.
The Bi-State region includes portions of Douglas, Lyon, Carson City, Mineral, and Esmeralda coCounties in Nevada, and portions of Inyo, Mono, and Alpine counties of California — in total, an area of 7,000 square miles.
The deadline for ACEP applications for 2018 funding is also April 27.
Among the grants, Churchill and Douglas counties each received $20,000 to conduct business attraction activities (Churchill) and to complete a regional market analysis and marketing strategy (Douglas).
