September 15-16, 2022

Mark your calendars! The Alliance’s biennial fall conservation conference is scheduled to take place on Thursday September 15 – Friday September 16 at Sierra Nevada Journeys’ Grizzly Creek Ranch in Portola, CA.

The theme of this year’s conference is Stronger Together: Innovation & Opportunity in the Face of Climate Change & Explosive Wildfire.

Stay tuned for the conference agenda and full details.



Grizzly Creek Ranch is surrounded by magnificent vistas, valleys and meadows located in the Plumas National Forest. From a high ropes challenge course to the forest and river ecosystems, Grizzly Creek Ranch is breathtaking and the ideal location for exploring nature.

The camp is fully ADA accessible and located in Portola, CA, just 45 minutes from Reno, NV and two hours from Sacramento, CA.

Call for Abstracts

The call for abstracts is open to anyone who has a conservation topic to share that is relevant for nonprofit, agency, tribal and academic conservation audiences working in the Sierra Nevada.

We are looking for abstracts that focus on innovative projects, research, best practices, challenges, and solutions. Example topics include:

  • Protecting California’s unique biodiversity
  • Expanding equitable access to nature and its benefits
  • Conserving places that help California achieve carbon neutrality and/or build climate resilience
  • Placing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in planning, decision making and implementation
  • Consulting and partnering with California Native American tribes
  • Protecting our economic prosperity, clean energy resources, and food supply
  • Successful restoration and monitoring projects
  • Community engagement, communication, and education
  • Advocacy and legislative efforts
  • Successful collaboration
  • Increasing and diversifying funding sources

Once the review process for abstracts is complete, the Sierra Nevada Alliance will reach out with more details. Free conference admission will be granted to the presenting author on the day of the conference presentation. Co-presenters will be required to purchase a conference ticket.
