The Great Basin is the largest area of contiguous watersheds in North America. This beautiful and arid landscape stretches over a vast region of Nevada and parts of Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and California.

To help manage this landscape, the Department of Interior established the Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC), one of 22 other LCCs. The Great Basin LCC helps facilitate, enhance, and inform conservation work at a landscape-wide scale.

These efforts, supported by Federal funding, aim to respond to concerns of climate change, invasive species, wildfires, human development, and other pressing issues.

The Great Basin LCC is guided by a Steering Committee made of agencies, non-govermental organizations, and tribal and state representatives from the five states of the Great Basin. To learn more about the Great Basin LCC please visit the information links.

Visit the Great Basin LCC Public Forum

Join us for the Great Basin LCC Public Forum online now until midnight Dec. 19.

This Forum aims to bring together members of the Great Basin conservation community to learn about the work of the GBLCC and provides an opportunity for the GBLCC to gather feedback on:

• Science and Traditional Ecological Knowledge priorities
• Potential new Steering Committee members
• A new Great Basin LCC website

Feel free to visit this site as many times as you’d like throughout the week. Don’t forget to share this link with your friends and colleagues! This site will close at midnight on Friday, Dec. 19. A summary of the key findings will be made available soon after.

We hope to see you there!
