The November meeting of the Desert Committee has been cancelled as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The 2021 February meeting in Shoshone has been tentatively rescheduled to March 6-7. Check back here for the latest information.

We will hold an on-line meeting using Zoom on Thursday, October 29. Join Laura Cunningham, Co-Founder of Basin and Range Watch, for a PowerPoint presentation on Zoom about the latest utility-scale solar projects proposed on public lands in California and Nevada. We’ll explore what these desert landscapes look like now, new methods of trying to lessen impacts, and the resulting large-scale energy landscape emerging on habitats for the federally threatened Mojave desert tortoise. We’ll also explore a proposed solar project on sage-grouse habitat.
