Welcome to Lander County
Lander County is located in northeast Nevada. Both Battle Mountain and Austin are boom-bust communities that are economically dependent upon the mining industry, which creates some of the economic and social pressures these communities face. In addition, agriculture and natural resources are important issues in this mostly rural county. University of Nevada Cooperative Extension offers children, youth and families and community development educational programs to its Lander County citizens.
