The Sayles project is in Sierra County just north of Stampede Reservoir and east of the Highway 89N corridor. This project protects and enhances forest lands above critical water supply infrastructure for the metropolitan areas of Reno and Sparks in the State of Nevada. Large meadow complexes are found within the project site, providing the opportunity to significantly enhance high-quality habitat conditions, while at the same time, reducing the potential wildfire severity, and restoring forest health conditions.
