Tukes Mountain Land Acquisition

Category Overview

Urban Wildlife Habitat projects fund close-to-home places to play and explore nature. As our urban areas are increasingly expanding and densifying, these grants protect important fish and wildlife habitat within five miles of densely populated areas, creating green refuges that help keep our ecosystems healthy and provide places to enjoy nature right in our backyards.

Project Highlights

The proposal was for Clark County to use this funding to purchase approximately 25 acres of forest land located on Tukes Mountain. However after appraisals were completed, the landowner declined to sell their property at this time. Clark County requests that this project be closed.
