Great Basin Sagebrush Restoration Fund

Sagebrush ecosystems in the United States have eroded to about 56% of their historical range due to land degradation, especially from wildfire and invasive species propagation. Lithium Americas has recently established the ‘Great Basin Sagebrush Restoration Fund’ (GBSR Fund) with the University of Nevada Foundation (UNR Foundation)to advance research and development towards improved, cost-effective restoration of degraded sagebrush rangelands.

The GBSR Fund has a view to rapidly grow and advance the knowledge base related to sage grouse habitat restoration. We intend to create the largest sagebrush rehabilitation research fund in the world, and we encourage partners with a shared interest and vision to participate in this mission.

For more information on this fund or giving to the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology and Natural Resources, please contact Christina Sarman, Executive Director of Development at (775)784-6009 or christinas@unr.edu.
