Successes Where We're Helping Win the Fight


@sierranevadaalliance

💥President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act!💥⁠
⁠
Today marks a massive leap forward in protecting the places we live and lifestyles we love. The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) includes our time's largest, most impactful climate legislation.⁠
⁠
We have seen the impacts of climate change in the Sierra Nevada we love so passionately. We're dedicated to protecting these places for generations to come so that they too can experience the fun, challenge, and magic it takes to explore this fantastic region.⁠

We have a bear-y big problem! 🐻⁠
⁠
Due to burned habitats and urban sprawl, we see more bears in Sierra Nevada neighborhoods. They’re not only rummaging through trashcans but also breaking into cars, homes, and businesses in search of a food source. ⁠
⁠
Please toss your trash in a sealed bear-proof trash container and take that extra step to fully close the cans. When you’re out beaching, hiking or biking, leave not track and pack your trash. And, if you see some litter, be a do-gooder and pick it up. We’re all in this together. Help us keep our wildlife wild! ⁠
