Our Vision

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.

Our Mission

PIC is an information conduit that fills the gap between rural communities and government entities; develops specific partnerships to resolve conservation, recreation, and public land issues; PIC also develops specific partnerships and administers common-sense projects that provide win-win opportunities for all involved.

Our Ethics

Adherence to the law is the minimum standard of expected behavior; PIC further commits to the higher standards of transparency, integrity, and honesty. PIC also strives to achieve a level of Excellency in all we do. All staff and board members will act by these standards in all our dealings as representatives of PIC. PIC promotes a working environment that values respect, fairness and integrity. We abide by a conflict of interest policy wherein any conflict or the appearance thereof is avoided or appropriately managed through disclosure, refusal, or other means.
PIC has an active governing body of Board of Directors who are responsible for setting the mission and strategic direction of PIC, as well as overseeing its finances, operations and policies. PIC's staff have the requisite skills and experience necessary to carry out their duties and act, at all times, for the benefit of PIC and our stated vision, mission and goals.
