"a small nonprofit community resource network with a visionary agenda: to help people in the central and southern Great Plains recognize how much their well-being depends upon the commons.

Ogallala Commons refers to the region that overlies the vast High Plains-Ogallala Aquifer. This water commonwealth is the largest (by volume) freshwater aquifer on the planet…underlying 174,000 square miles that spreads across parts of eight states: most of Nebraska, most of the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles, western Kansas, eastern Colorado, eastern New Mexico, southeastern Wyoming, and parts of the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations in South Dakota."
