Partners in Conservation (PIC) will be a lasting, permanent, and significant factor in enabling citizens of rural Northeast Clark County and other rural communities in Nevada and the West to take an active role in public land, conservation, and recreational issues.
Partners In Conservation (PIC) incorporated on August 7, 1997 and is a 501c(3) non-profit organization. We are local, concerned citizens organized into a check-and-balance style of leadership wherein the Board votes on issues and receives no monetary gain from such and the Administration does not vote, but implements the Board of Directors’ decisions. As of 10-01-2017, PIC has successfully managed and completed projects totaling over $2,375,000.00 to date, with over $670,000.00 of volunteer hours bringing the value of our completed projects to over $3,000,000.00. Our success rate is 100% with repeated contracts from multiple entities, thus demonstrating that PIC, although a non-profit, conducts itself like a small business. As much as possible, we support local businesses, purchasing project equipment, supplies, materials, and administrative items (insurance, etc.), and utilizing local labor resources. Not only does this return money to the community, we also believe this saves us money in the long-run, allowing us to donate 10% – 15% of our income to non-profits who support our projects. PIC is much more than a non-profit that believes in conservation, PIC is a non-profit that focuses on bringing economic assistance, information, and active involvement to our communities and individuals. Structuring those priorities around common-sense conservation projects lets PIC achieve multi-tiered benefits from each of our projects. Our unique expertise can be found in the intertwining of common-sense conservation projects, active participation (by an amazing cross-section of the public), horizontal education, and unfettered opportunities to exchange information, opinions, and ideas. The by-products of this distinctive formation of hands-on participation with education and information are a win-win bonanza for all partners, a natural, spontaneous, and positive public relations event, and an involved, informed, and engaged citizenry—Partners, In Conservation.
