❗️The Time to Act is Now❗️ We're making real strides toward building wildfire and water resilience in Sierra Nevada forests and watersheds, but State budget cuts severely threaten this progress. We need a stable funding source for local conservation and restoration projects!⁠
⁠
A recent Federal Climate Financial Report shows that over the last decade, wildfire suppression has cost the USFS and the Department of the Interior an average of more than $3 billion per year. Anticipated increased fire suppression costs due to climate change bring additional urgency to the need to invest in wildfire resilience projects and efforts to protect communities ahead of extreme climate events.⁠
⁠
We need State investments in restoration and land management programs that:⁠
🌳Protect our health, environment, and way of life⁠
🏔️Preserve irreplaceable landscapes⁠
✨ Maintain California's climate leadership⁠
🔥 Avoid catastrophic impacts due to megafires⁠
⁠
Please help us urge our State leaders to keep the momentum going! What can you do?⁠

It’s SNAP Takeover Tuesday! 💫⁠
⁠
This week, we’re in Lake Tahoe with Annika Artle, who’s serving her 2nd AmeriCorps term with Sierra Nevada Alliance as the Education, Outreach, and Recruitment Coordinator 🏔️⁠
⁠
Annika’s service primarily involves community engagement for SNA, from social media to event planning to website management. This year, she’s also taking a big hand in running Take Care Sierra, a regional recreational stewardship campaign. She’s also helping recruit organizations for SNAP and other SNA programs.⁠

Happy Pride!🌈💖 This month and every month, we honor the diversity of our communities across the Sierra Nevada. We recognize the daily struggles that the LQBTQ+ community faces and know there’s a long way to go in equality for all, especially in the outdoors. Nature is diverse, just like the people who enjoy it, and we strive to always provide a safe and supportive space.⁠
