Far Western’s Great Basin Branch is located in Carson City, Nevada. This branch office provides cultural resources services and research across the northern Great Basin region of Nevada, California, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah. Under the direction of D. Craig Young, Ph.D., a Far Western Principal, the Great Basin staff includes 11 full-time cultural resources specialists and archaeologists who provide an in-depth understanding of the archaeological record and of management challenges particular to Nevada and the Great Basin. The office serves as a regional, full-service administrative and operational arm of Far Western, but is fully integrated with personnel and facilities provided by our main office, in Davis, California. The Great Basin Branch is conveniently situated near Bureau of Land Management State and District offices, the Nevada State Historic Preservation Office and archives, and retains close ties to the University of Nevada, Reno.
