Sierra Nevada Alliance
Since 1993 the Sierra Nevada Alliance has been protecting and restoring Sierra lands, water, wildlife, and communities. Their mission is to protect and restore the natural resources of the Sierra Nevada for future generations while promoting sustainable communities. The organization is an alliance of over one hundred conservation groups that are based or work in the Sierra Nevada region, spanning the entire 400 mile mountain range. The Sierra Nevada Alliance is working with conservation representatives, resource managers and community leaders to ensure they have cutting-edge tools to adapt resource plans and projects and address change in ways that protect and restore Sierra waters, lands, wildlife and rural communities.
The Sierra Water & Climate Change Program alerts the public and decision makers to the impacts of climate change in the Sierra and ensures that smart local resource management plans (watershed plans, general plans, hydropower re-licensing, integrated regional water management, forestry, etc.) are adopted that protect natural resources by reducing emissions and adapting to the changing climate.
