Sierra-Front Northwestern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council
The Sierra Front-Northwestern Great Basin RAC covers a geographic area approximately coinciding with the Sierra Nevada, Malheur High Plateau, Humbolt, Fallon-Lovelock and Carson Basin major land resource areas. These areas include federal public lands administered by the BLM-Carson City and Winnemucca District Offices in Humboldt, Pershing, Washoe, Storey, Carson City, Douglas, Churchill, Lyon, Mineral, and Nye Counties in Nevada and small portions of Alpine, Lassen & Sierra Counties in California.
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 land issues and their commitment to collaboration in seeking solutions to those issues.
