The Boca project is just west of Boca Reservoir and north of Interstate 80. This project protects and enhances forest lands around critical water supply infrastructure for the metropolitan areas of Reno and Sparks in the State of Nevada. Overall tree health in the watershed has declined due to high stand density, recent prolonged drought, insects, and disease. Significant road networks have bisected existing meadows and disrupted the natural flow of surface and ground waters. Planning and surveying are underway to define the treatments to reduce wildfire severity, and restore forest and meadow habitat.
