Together with YOU, despite this challenging year, the Alliance is proud to share that we are accomplishing the following:
● Launching this summer! A youth Ambassador Program focused on workforce development with local South Lake Tahoe high school and junior college students. These Ambassadors will engage with visitors to educate them about Leave No Trace ethics and sustainable recreation, while partnering with law enforcement to minimize environmental impacts.
● Planning a grant program for regional environmental non-profits to launch in 2021/early 2022 to bolster conservation capacity!
● The first year of our new Sierra Corps Forestry Fellowship Program restored and monitored 4,500 acres, collaborated with 150 stakeholders through their capacity building leadership in 5 sub regions in the Sierra, and leveraged $50k in cash match, and $75k in in-kind contributions.
Wildflowers along the American River this Spring!
None of this would have been possible without YOU, and we need your help to continue these important programs!
This Spring, your donations will help us build new programs, like the Youth Ambassador Program, and increase our engagement with the diverse communities that make our region so unique!
Thanks to our sponsors at Patagonia at Heavenly, we are also offering some awesome gear for our spring donors! 10 donors, who donate more than $100, between April 1st and May 31st, will be randomly selected, and appreciated, with some awesome Patagonia gear/apparel!
Donate right now on our website or mail in your valued contribution to participate in one or all of these opportunities today!
