Bird Habitat Conservation

Las Vegas, Nev. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) today joined representatives of First Solar and The Nature Conservancy as they unveiled a new collaboration to restore wild bird habitat along the Amargosa River. During a launch event at Torrance Ranch Preserve, local officials, community members, and elementary school students planted willow cuttings to expand and enhance existing bird habitat.

“As someone who was born and raised in Nevada, I take great pride in our state’s breathtaking landscapes and diverse wildlife. I feel lucky to have spent my childhood exploring these natural treasures with my family, and I believe all of Nevada’s children should have the same opportunity. I commend First Solar and The Nature Conservancy for making much-needed investments to restore avian habitats and for bringing us together to support conservation efforts across Southern Nevada.”
