Conserve Wildlife License Plate

CW_License-PlateThe Nevada Department of Wildlife's "Conserve Wildlife" license plate is now available at any Nevada Department of Motor Vehicle office. Proceeds from the sale of this license plate, which features a mule deer, sage-grouse and cutthroat trout against a classic Nevada landscape, will go directly to the NDOW wildlife education and volunteer programs.

The Wildlife Education program supports NDOW's Trout in the Classroom and Project Wild programs, the Oxbow Nature Study Area and the Verdi Nature Trail and Center, and interpretive education programs in Reno, Verdi, Las Vegas and Elko. An average of 18,000 to 20,000 school-aged children enjoy these programs each year.

NDOW's Preserving Our Wildlife Legacy (PrOWL) Volunteer Program was formed in 2000 to serve as a mechanism for citizen-volunteers to become more involved with wildlife projects, such as habitat restoration programs, sage brush seed collection and sage grouse surveys. Each year, 600-700 PrOWL volunteers donate time working on projects worth a half million dollars. Their contributions benefit wildlife directly, and are also applied as match to federal grants in lieu of state funding for a variety of wildlife projects.

This plate provides an opportunity for everyone in Nevada to contribute financially to wildlife education and assist in maintaining the opportunities provided Nevada's citizens through the volunteer program.
