Supporting Healthy Communities Through Investment in Nature and Volunteerism
The Carson Tahoe Health Community Partnership Fund was established to enable people to be a force for good—to build new collaborations and shared investments, build community capacity and community leaders, and bring like-minded partners together. The Fund provides grant assistance to projects that advance health equity by addressing the social determinants of health, and the conditions in which people live, work, play, and age.
One such grant recipient is the Nature Conservancy’s River Fork Ranch in Genoa. With support from the Fund, staff and volunteers at the Ranch inspire all generations of Nevadans to engage with and learn about the importance of preserving our natural environment.
“Carson Tahoe Health’s Community Partnership Fund has provided funding to develop a Volunteer Docent Program at The Nature Conservancy’s River Fork Ranch,” says Lori Leonard, The Nature Conservancy’s River Fork Ranch Manager. “This incredible gift will facilitate long-term community engagement with nature, visitors, and the health benefits that come from both volunteering and interactions with the outdoors.”
