Where We’re Working

Nevada

Nevada’s diverse outdoor landscapes span towering mountain peaks, sagebrush-covered high plains, and vast deserts, providing residents with endless opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of their state. However, Nevada’s $3.9 billion outdoor recreation industry is at risk in the face of climate change-induced wildfires and extreme heat. Reduced air quality from wildfires has negative impacts on human health preventing Nevada residents from enjoying hiking, running, biking and camping outdoors.

Major climate-related issues in Nevada are centered around electric vehicles, public lands and the challenges associated with population growth. Given that nearly 86 percent of land in the state is owned by the federal government, almost all matters involving land swaps, protections or designations require an act of Congress.

With one Senate seat and four in the House up for election in 2024, Nevada voters can directly influence who will be in Congress making these climate-related decisions that will save the places and activities we love the most.

GET INVOLVED

Elections in Nevada are won by razor thin margins– often by just a few thousand votes. By activating Nevada’s skiers, hunters, anglers, cyclists, and climbers to volunteer for just two hours, we can help climate champions win across the ballot in November.

Join POW AF’s Action Corps volunteer program. You’ll be connected to literature drops, door-knocking, and phone banking opportunities statewide. Plus, enjoy exclusive Action Corps bike rides, happy hours and events with our Alliance members.
