Join Laura Cunningham for a PowerPoint presentation on Zoom about the latest utility-scale solar projects proposed on public lands in California and Nevada. We’ll explore what these desert landscapes look like now, new methods of trying to lessen impacts, and the resulting large-scale energy landscape emerging on habitats for the federally threatened Mojave desert tortoise. We’ll also explore a proposed solar project on sage-grouse habitat.
