Mojave-Southern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council

The Mojave-Southern Great Basin RAC covers a geographic area approximately coinciding with the Southern Nevada Basin and Range, and Sonoran Basin and Range major land resource area in Esmeralda, Nye, Lincoln and Clark 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 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.

The RAC has three subcommittees, i.e., Planning, Recreation, and Basin and Range National Monument RMP (Resource Management Plan).
