Mission and Vision

The Sierra Fund’s mission is to restore ecosystem and community resiliency in the Sierra Nevada.

The Sierra Fund promotes headwater resiliency with a vision of adaptive recovery for the environment and communities that are still blighted from centuries-old resource extraction. We identify, articulate, assess and implement ways to address these lasting impacts as demonstrated in the body of work that we have developed since our founding in 2001. The Sierra Fund believes that an environmentally healthy, resilient community has these entwined elements:

A healthy place to live, work and raise a family, with clean air, water and soil, and residents who are empowered to protect and, if needed, restore these resources.
