Can I choose where my conda environment is stored?

Can I change the path /Users/nolan/miniconda/envs/ to another one when creating a virtual environment ? I'd like it to be specific to my project directory. (As we can do with virtualenv)

$conda info -e
Using Anaconda Cloud api site
# conda environments:
_build                   /Users/nolan/miniconda/envs/_build
myen3                    /Users/nolan/miniconda/envs/myen3
nolanemirot              /Users/nolan/miniconda/envs/nolanemirot
root                  *  /Users/nolan/miniconda

You can change the environments directory by editing your .condarc file found in your user directory. Add the following specifying the path to the directory you want:

  - /Users/nolan/newpath
