Great Basin Sagebrush Project is part of the Sustainability in Prisons Project. It is an environmental partnership between the Institute for Applied Ecology, Department of Corrections, and the Bureau of Land Management to provide unique and meaningful ecological activities to incarcerated men and women with the goal of restoring sagebrush habitat for the greater sage-grouse in the great basin region through a six state grow out initiative.

For 2016, we are coordinating with seven states in the great basin region to grow over 390,000 sagebrush and other sage steppe plants important to the region.
