• Bureau of Reclamation
    In FY2013 NFWF continued to work under a grant with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) to develop and implement the Walker Basin Restoration Program in Nevada and California. This program’s goal is to improve flows in the lower Walker River and to restore and maintain water levels in Walker Lake. NFWF initiated an agricultural sustainability project and worked with four willing sellers to acquire water rights along the East, West and Main Walker Rivers in Nevada, and to extend efforts in the Truckee, Carson, and Summit Basins. NFWF also partnered with Reclamation and the Bureau of Land Management on a youth conservation employment program which is being expanded to include the Forest Service and Fish and Wildlife Service.
