Member Groups are the heart and soul of the Alliance. These groups are part of a network making a difference on issues throughout the Sierra. Founded in 1993, our Alliance is made up of over 85 organizational members – all are working to protect and restore the natural and community values of the Sierra.
The Sierra Nevada Alliance’s network of conservation groups continues to be at the forefront of promoting a conservation and sustainability ethic in local Sierra communities. These groups steward a variety of resource management activities: hydropower relicensing, watershed restoration, community land use planning, timber harvest planning, and much more.
Your organization can join the Sierra Nevada Alliance (or renew your membership) and become part of a network committed to Sierra environmental issues. The Sierra Nevada Alliance is the only organization committed to strengthening the work of Sierra grassroots groups, which work to protect and restore the natural and community values of the Sierra. If you love the Sierra, the Alliance is an effective network to join.
All it takes to join us as a Member Group (or to renew your membership) is to agree to the Sierra Nevada Alliance mission statement, pay an annual membership fee that is on a sliding scale based on the size of your organization's budget, and fill out a Member Group Application. For a Member Group application, please contact Lynn Baumgartner at lynnATsierranevadaallianceDOTorg or 530.542.4546 extension 305.
Bottom line, all these individual efforts are one effort. The Sierra Nevada Alliance mission is to protect and restore the Sierra Nevada and to achieve this mission by strengthening individual efforts and joining together to be a region-wide force. The Sierra faces extreme challenges in terms of climate change, population growth and poor resource management. We believe we must do everything in our power to make local efforts stronger to protect all the Sierra’s special places, while building a network that will be the foundation for future success.
Together we make a difference!
