The Great Basin pocket mouse frequents areas where sagebrush, rabbitbrush, and bitterbrush are plentiful, such as the Hanford Reach. They are primarily seed eaters, especially seeds of grasses. They live on a diet which is virtually free of drinking water and can manufacture a sufficient amount of water from the metabolism of their food intake. The Great Basin pocket mouse and other inhabitants of the Hanford Reach are studied by researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
