Resource Advisory Councils in Nevada

Welcome to the BLM Nevada Resource Advisory Councils (RACs) home page. Nevada has three RACs: the Mojave-Southern Great Basin, the Sierra Front-Northwestern Great Basin and the Northeastern Great Basin. Each RAC consists of a 15-member advisory panel that provides advice and recommendations to the BLM on resource and land management issues for 48 million acres (67 percent of the state) of BLM-administered lands in Nevada.
