The Hobart project is north and west of Prosser Reservoir and east of Highway 89N. This project protects and enhances land above critical water supply infrastructure for Reno and Sparks in the State of Nevada. The area has experienced a long history of human-use impacts including logging and railroads. In addition to these human-use impacts, forest health conditions were further impacted by the 1960 Donner Ridge Fire, which burned a considerable area of the watershed, leaving largely homogeneous stand conditions. Planning and surveying are underway to define the treatments to reduce wildfire severity and restore forest and meadow habitat.
