The Great Basin Environmental Program is an effort by the land grants that share the Great Basin — University of California, University of Idaho, Oregon State University, University of Nevada, Reno and Utah State University. The land grants know that there are other organizations addressing the environmental problems of the Great Basin. These include federal government agencies, state agencies, NGOs, community organizations and the private sector. There are as well other multi-institutional projects with which we expect to cooperate. Examples are:
- Great Basin Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit, Maureen McCarthy
- Great Basin Environmental Program, Stan Johnson
- Great Basin Fire Science Exchange Project, Eugenie MontBlanc
- Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative, Todd Hopkins
- Great Basin Research and Management Partnership, Nancy Glenn
- Great Basin Native Plant Program, Francis Kilkenny
We stand ready to cooperate with all of these organizations, as the Great Basin’s environmental programs are complex and far reaching. The first effort of this attempt to cooperate is to list the various projects related to invasive species and invite other agencies that have an interest in cooperating. In addition, we will actively seek partners for our research and demonstration projects recognizing that we do not have all of the scientific and practical skills to effectively address all of the complex issues related to our projects. We will post reports on our projects frequently and invite the other organizations dealing with the environment and the Great Basin to make overtures for cooperation and joint work on these and other projects.
