Great Basin Consortium
This multi-state, collaborative research project was initiated in 2001 by the USDI Bureau of Land Management and
the USDA FS RMRS’s Grassland, Shrubland and Desert Ecosystem Research
Program. Major objectives are to improve the availability of native
plant materials and to provide the knowledge and technology required for
their use in restoring diverse native plant communities across the
Great Basin. More than 20 federal, state, and private cooperators are
involved in this project.
