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.
The Great Basin LCC Public Forum has ended. Thanks to all who participated and provided valuable feedback. Here's a quick recap of the event:
- 222 people participated
- 70 people attended the Kickoff Webinar
- 78 pieces of feedback were collected
A full summary of the feedback received will be available on our website in January. Your comments on the Science and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (S-TEK) priorities and implementation will be reviewed by the S-TEK working group, who will finalize the S-TEK Strategy in February. Our website team is reviewing the web survey results, and the new GBLCC website will go live in late February.
