What we do
Whether it’s exploring Mt. Charleston, enjoying a picnic at Mill Creek, or enjoying a special place closer to home, Nevada’s natural wonders enrich our lives in countless ways. Yet the places we love and the values we share are too often threatened.
We research the issues and educate the public about what’s at stake. Through our reports, news conferences and interviews with reporters, we help the media cover environmental issues in ways that make sense. Our canvassers meet citizens where they are — starting conversations in public places or going to door-to-door — explaining our mission while raising awareness and funds for environmental protection.
When decisions are being made about our environment, our elected officials hear plenty from the oil companies, developers and other powerful interests. We speak up for our environment, making our case to public officials and helping you make your voice heard when it matters most.

ACTION FOR THE PLACES WE LOVE AND THE VALUES WE SHARE
- To breathe clean air and drink clean water
Polluters are breaking the law and, too often, the government fails to stop them. Over the past 25 years, our national litigation team has filed dozens of lawsuits against companies that dumped illegal amounts of pollution into our nation’s air, rivers, bays and harbors — resulting in more than $250 million in court-ordered penalties and pollution reduction actions. With member support, Environment Nevada is holding polluters accountable. LEARN MORE
- To power our lives with 100% renewable energy
We’re promoting a bold, clear vision of a greener, healthier world — one powered solely by energy harnessed from the sun and the wind. We’re also taking steps to help build that future right now by encouraging campuses, cities, states and Congress to commit to 100% renewable energy. Already, Atlanta, Philadelphia and more than 50 other cities across the country have adopted that goal, along with universities from Colorado State to Cornell. LEARN MORE
- To allow wildlife and wild places to thrive
Our parks, forests, mountains, oceans and the wildlife that call them home help make this country special. Now they need our help, as bees die off by the millions, public lands and waters are opened up to drilling and mining, and plastic pollution in our oceans puts wildlife at risk. Environment Nevada is calling for bans on bee-killing pesticides and single-use plastic, and standing up for the wild places and creatures we love. LEARN MORE
