Successes Where We're Helping Win the Fight


@sierranevadaalliance

Giant Sequoias need our help! 🌲⁠
⁠
These magnificent trees are the largest in the world and can live for over 3,000 years. But they have been severely impacted by wildfires in the Sierra Nevada and are struggling with ever-worsening climate-related conditions. Since 2020, fires have caused a 13 to 19 percent decline in the entire sequoia population. With California already facing extreme drought conditions, these trees are at higher risk due to increased fire danger and intensity.⁠
⁠
Have no fear! The Alliance is here! Our Sierra Corps Forestry Fellows will have their boots on the ground in no time, working to build resilient forest in the face of climate change and explosive wildfire. ⁠
⁠

Exciting news! The City of South Lake Tahoe is a finalist for the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) Action Fund grant! 💡🌱☀️⁠
⁠
Made possible through funding from Google.org, the ICLEI Action Fund will provide three awards of $1,000,000 to accelerate the implementation of a U.S. local government climate action plan while addressing inequality. In partnership with Sierra Business Council, the City of South Lake Tahoe is one of eight finalists being considered for this highly competitive award!⁠
