We collaborate with and empower our Member Groups to build strong and unified strategies to protect the Sierra Nevada.
The Alliance and our Member Groups have been working together for over 30 years to protect and restore the natural environment and community values of the Sierra Nevada. It is paramount to support local efforts to address these issues and protect special places while building a network that will be the foundation for future success.
At the core of the Alliance’s founding purpose and mission, our Member Group Program grants over 40 organizations access to a network of affiliates and partnerships making a difference on issues throughout the Sierra.
