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.

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

We are so proud of all individuals and organizations that participated in this year's Great Sierra River Cleanup! ⁠
This year, the Sierra Nevada Alliance began a soft transition to the role of regional coordinator for the #GreatSierraRiverCleanup, taking over from past coordination by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy. The 2021 Great Sierra River Cleanup took place on September 18th this year, though more activities and cleanups associated with this event and under the umbrella of the state-wide #CaliforniaCoastalCleanupDay continued throughout the month.⁠
Despite reduced capacity and less than half the normal number of events and sites across the state, data submitted to the California Coastal Commission shows over 21,000 volunteers participated in California this year! Multiple Alliance member groups held events and contributed to the statewide totals of more than 153,000 pounds of trash and  9,000 pounds of recyclable materials (with more cleanup sites yet to report their totals!). Over the week of September 11-18, @yubariverpeople 's Yuba River Cleanup alone collected over 12,000 pounds along the Yuba River, between weeklong self-guided cleanups and and a community cleanup event on September 18. The @easternsierralandtrust also held their own event (pictured above), filling up an entire trailer with trash from their cleanup of the Owens River.⁠
Thank you to all participants for your hard work, and we look forward to working with partners to host cleanup events across the Sierra next year! ⁠
