The Northeastern Great Basin RAC covers
a geographic area approximately coinciding with
the Owyhee High Plateau and Central Nevada Basin and Range
major land resource areas in Elko, White Pine, Lander
and Eureka Counties in Nevada.
This RAC meets 3-4 times per year. Membership
includes a cross section of Nevadans around the state
representing energy, federal grazing, and commercial recreation
interests; environmental, archaeological interests, dispersed
recreation, and wild horse and burro interests; and Native
Americans, elected officials, state agency representatives
and the public at large. Council members are selected
for their ability to provide informed, objective advice
on a broad array of public lands issues and their commitment
to collaboration in seeking solutions to those issues.
