Save the giant sequoias! 🌲 🌲 🌲 ⁠
⁠
Giant sequoias, also known as Sierra Redwoods, are the largest trees in the world, and they can only be found naturally on the western slope of the Sierra Nevada. ⁠
⁠
Sadly, nearly 20 percent of all giant sequoias died over the past two years. Among those killed, were the largest trees in each grove, called monarchs, that mostly died in the 2020 Castle, 2021 KNP Complex, and Windy Fires. ⁠
⁠
To help protect these iconic trees, the federal government recently initiated emergency fuel-reduction treatments on 13,000-plus acres of U.S. Forest Service land in and around 12 giant sequoia groves. This two-year project will complement the Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC)-funded Grant Grove Big Stump Ecological Restoration Project, which will wrap up in early 2023.⁠

For the third year in a row, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts the American West is in for another dry La Niña winter. This is unwelcome news for parts of the West struggling to keep the water flowing. ⁠
⁠
La Niña trends:⁠
💦 Pacific jet stream meanders high into the North Pacific⁠
💦 Southern tier of the U.S. from California to the Carolinas is warmer and drier than average.⁠
💦 Ohio to the Upper Mississippi Valleys is wetter than usual⁠
💦 Increased Atlantic hurricane season activity⁠
💦 Winters tend to be drier through the southern tier of the U.S. and can lead to or exacerbate drought⁠
💦 Wetter (and snowier) conditions for parts of the northern tier of the U.S. ⁠
💦 Hotter, drier summers in Texas ⁠
💦 More frequent spring hailstorms and tornadoes in the south-central U.S. ⁠
💦 Alaska winters tend to be cooler and wetter, and Hawaii winters tend to be rainier⁠
💦 Reduced atmospheric rivers impacting the west coast⁠

The results are in, and Greg is our hero! ⁠
⁠
Due to several fires burning hot in the Sierra, Lake Tahoe was smoked out for the Tahoe Waterman Lake Crossing. In addition to tireless training, Greg has been working nonstop to rally his friends and family to donate to his race and the Alliance. ⁠
⁠
The smoke was thick, but Greg was committed to making good on his promise to paddle that 22 miles. So he headed to Lake Natoma. Starting his personal race at sunrise on Saturday, winds steadily increased as he crossed the finish line in 5 hours and 20 minutes. Fierce! Greg and all his supporters, thank you, thank you, thank you.⁠
⁠
The fundraiser was hugely successful, raising $5,630 to protect Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada waters. Does Greg inspire you? There’s still time to chip in at bit.ly/SUPLAKETAHOE or by visiting our Link.in bio. Take action today! ⁠
