Issues A Region at Risk

Since 1993, the Sierra Nevada Alliance has been protecting and restoring Sierra lands, water, wildlife, and communities.

The Sierra Nevada Alliance exists to elevate and support Sierra ecosystems and communities.

We are a hub for stewardship of the Sierra Nevada, which we achieve by empowering and collaborating with our partners.

Every Sierra ecosystem and community is healthy, resilient, and collectively cared for through thriving partnerships, as a legacy for future generations.

Today's Wild & Scenic Film Festival Program highlight is Feathers In Flight: The Bird Genoscape Project! ⁠
Biologist Mary Whitfield has spent two decades studying one of North America’s rarest birds: the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher. Not much is known about their migratory route, so Mary has joined a cutting-edge effort to gather data on birds’ genomes from individual feathers, connecting breeding and wintering populations of the same species and providing critical information to conservationists and managers. The Bird Genoscape project brings together researchers from all over the Americas in an effort to protect the birds that tie the Western Hemisphere together.⁠
Watch along with us April 22 @ 7pm! Purchase your tickets now! (link in bio)

"We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and our own." - César Chávez⁠
César Chávez Day gives us an opportunity to celebrate Chávez's legacy in the state of California and the world by serving the needs of our communities. César Chávez serves as an example of a leader and champion for labor and human rights, as well as environmental justice. Consider how you can uplift marginalized members of your own community on this day of service, reflection, and action.⁠
