17th Annual Conference of the Sierra Nevada Alliance

The Sierra Nevada Alliance 17th Annual Conference is August 27-28 at Lake Tahoe Community College Student Center 1 College Drive South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150. It  consists of two days of  speakers,  workshops, field trips, and networking on keeping  the Sierra resilient.  The first day is focused on the laws and regulations of local governments, California and the nation and how they can be used to protect water, habitat, land use, climate change and rural community quality of life.

“The Sierra is a foundation of California and Nevada’s prosperity – supplying clean water, energy, and recreational refuge to millions. In the face of a growing population, changing climate, and degrading natural resources the Sierra Nevada will need to be resilient. We will need to adapt to changes we cannot predict and adopt smarter policies and programs than our past. A key to our resiliency will be strong local partnerships so we may tackle challenges together as communities. Innovative and fun strategies, cost-effective new approaches and a commitment to stewardship can help us protect our most precious region”  The Sierra Nevada Alliance
