Sierra Nevada Conservancy

The Sierra Nevada Conservancy initiates, encourages, and supports efforts that improve the environmental, economic and social well-being of the Sierra Nevada Region, its communities and the citizens of California.

Program
The SNC supports the Sierra Nevada Region in many tangible ways: from providing funding for local projects to offering technical assistance and other support for collaborative projects in partnership with local government, non-profit organizations and Tribal entities.  Activities supported will contribute to the following program objectives:

  • provide increased opportunity for tourism and recreation in the Region;
  • protect, conserve and restore the Region’s physical, cultural, archaeological, historical and living resources;
  • aid in the preservation of working landscapes;
  • reduce the risk of natural disasters, such as wildfire;
  • protect and improve water and air quality;
  • assist the regional economy; and
  • enhance public use and enjoyment of lands owned by the public.
