Site Screening Tool for Potential Credit Developers

Are you a landowner or land manager potentially interested in participating in the Nevada Conservation Credit System? The online site screening tool enables potential credit developers to quickly get a snapshot of their property’s suitability for participating in the program.

Landowners simply delineate the potential credit site boundaries on a map and answer basic questions about the property. The tool evaluates potential site habitat quality based on important habitat characteristics and proximity to roads, mines, and other man-made features.

Users can run the tool multiple times for different properties, and adjust site boundaries to optimize site quality. Results are private, and no data is saved or transmitted without the user’s permission.

For questions about the program or this tool, contact Credit System Program Manager Kelly McGowan at
