Our goal at the Sierra Nevada Alliance is to protect and restore the Sierra Nevada by strengthening individual efforts and joining together as a region-wide force.
The most integral component of the Alliance is our strong network of Member Groups. We currently have over 40 Member Groups and have an extensive network of affiliates and partners. As a part of the Alliance, you are a part of a coordinated network making a difference on issues throughout the Sierra. The Alliance and our Member Groups have been working together for over 25 years to protect and restore the natural environment and community values of the Sierra. It is of paramount importance to support local efforts to address these issues and to protect the Sierra’s special places while building a network that will be the foundation for future success.
In addition to being part of a Sierra-wide team, the Alliance provides Sierra Nevada Member Groups with resources to increase their organizational capacity and elevate their conservation work. Check out our 2022 Member Group Packet. Benefits include:
