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.

"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.⁠

It's #WorldWaterDay today! What does water mean to you? ⁠
Water is extremely important to us -- the Sierra Nevada is the source of drinking water for more than 23 million Californians! ⁠
Water that originates in the Sierra Nevada makes it way to faucets and sprinklers all over the state, providing agricultural irrigation as well as drinking water. But our water doesn't only create and sustain life, it also provides recreational opportunities and an important cultural resource. ⁠
The Sierra Nevada Alliance sees watersheds as the lifeblood of Sierra ecosystems and communities. Protecting and restoring Sierra watersheds is one of the top priorities of the Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership (SNAP) program -- our SNAP members have restored over 19,000 acres and monitored over 7,500 ecological sites since 2007. ⁠
We hope that you think about water in your life this World Water Day! Want to learn more about your watershed? Check out the link in bio!⁠

The California Tahoe Conservancy (CTC) just released their Story Map: Tahoe's Climate Future. It's an interactive way to understand the climate change vulnerabilities we will all face here in the Tahoe Basin. This quick glimpse into the future highlights the importance of taking climate action here in Tahoe, and all throughout the Sierra. The Story Map is based off of the CTC's Integrated Vulnerability Assessment -- check it out!⁠
