Santa Rosa-Paradise Restoration

The Santa Rosa-Paradise landscape is a priority landscape under Nevada Division of Forestry's (NDF) Forest, Range and Watershed Action Plan.

The Santa Rosa-Paradise landscape is a priority landscape under Nevada Division of Forestry's (NDF) Forest, Range and Watershed Action Plan.

This landscape includes lands managed by the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest Santa Rosa Ranger District and adjacent private, tribal and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands in Humboldt County, Nevada.

Funding will be used for: 1) removal of Medusahead and other invasive annual grasses and noxious weeds, and reseeding/restoration in the Paradise Shared Stewardship Priority Landscape, prioritized for treatment under the Nevada Shared Stewardship Agreement; 2) reestablishment of a cross-jurisdictional fuel break that protects the Santa Rosa-Paradise Landscape; 3) proper functioning condition (PFC) assessments for prioritized streams within the Paradise Shared Stewardship Priority Landscape and connected and adjacent water basins to guide future watershed restoration.

The Santa Rosa-Paradise Landscape is sagebrush dominant with a diversity of other plant species in more shallow water basins. The project activities will reduce wildfire risk to multiple shared values, improve habitat for sage grouse, mule deer, Lahontan cutthroat trout and other species, and benefit the rural economy by protecting and enhancing the productivity of rangelands that support both family and corporate ranching, protecting mining industry infrastructure and maintaining and improving recreational opportunities and access and related economic activities.

Partners: Nevada Conservation District Program, Nevada Division of Forestry (NDF), Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW), Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the Ft. McDermitt Paiute and Shoshone Tribe, the Paradise Sonoma Conservation District, the Paradise Valley Weed District, the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Service Humboldt County Office, the University of Nevada, Reno's Great Basin Fire Science Exchange, and Humboldt County
