GREAT BASIN CONSORTIUM CHARTER [PDF]

VISION STATEMENT:

We are a consortium of partners who coordinate and collaborate on science delivery to achieve sustainable and resilient Great Basin ecosystems and human communities.

MISSION STATEMENT:

To increase communication and coordination among the partner organizations in order to enhance the effectiveness of their research, management, outreach and funding activities.

The activities that the mission statement supports are broadly interpreted by the partner organizations. Research includes scientific studies, science delivery and science application. Management includes land uses such grazing and restoration activities such as prescribed fire, weed control, and seeding. Management also includes identifying priority treatment areas from landscape assessments, project planning, on-the-ground implementation, and post-treatment monitoring/evaluation. Outreach includes disseminating science-based information by conducting education and extension activities including stakeholder forums, workshops and symposia. Funding activities refer to efforts to support research, on-the-ground project implementation, and outreach through various sources including grants, agency budgets, state legislative and federal congressional sources, private donations and gifts and volunteer contributions.
