Mission and Vision

The Sierra Fund’s mission is to protect and restore the resiliency of the ecosystems and communities of the Sierra Nevada in the face of the uncertainties brought on by climate change.

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 envision a Sierra that is a healthy place to live, work, visit and raise a family; with clean air, water, and soil; with all who benefit from our region being empowered to protect and restore our communities and natural resources for multiple generations. 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.
