Southern Nye County Conservation District

The Southern Nye County Conservation District (SNCCD) serves the southern half of Nye County, from the Sacrobatus Flat south to the California border. The majority of land within the district boundary is federally controlled by the Bureau of Land Management, the Department of Energy, and the National Park Service. The private agricultural lands are all irrigated from deep wells. The major workload within the district boundary is located in Beatty, Amargosa and Pahrump Valley.

The SNCCD will use funding from grants to continue the removal of Salt Cedar and Russian Olive trees from Oasis Valley, Amargosa Valley, and Pahrump, which entails supervising and inspecting all weed eradication projects within the work area.

The SNCCD will work with the Bureau of Land Management, NRCS, NDOW, The Nature Conservancy, Amargosa Toad Working Group, CWMA, Beatty General Improvement District and the Beatty Town Board, Amargosa Town Board, to keep them apprised of the on-going progress with the salt Cedar eradication projects in their area.

The SNCCD will work with the Bureau of Land Management, NDOW, in the eradication of noxious weeds. Aquatic approved herbicides will be used to control invasive plants closest to the Amargosa River.

The SNCCD will participate in natural seeding propagation and planting of seedlings with the Beatty Habitat Committee, Nevada Department of Forestry and private Landowners. Debris will be cleared and disposed of, along the river and at other work locations
