Strategic Approach

We base our work on science, stewardship, collaboration, environmental justice, and advocacy to achieve our vision. We pursue an approach that seeks a 360-degree understanding of challenges, engages problem solvers to explore potential solutions, implements pilot projects to hone effective approaches, expands best practices and policies to scale solutions throughout the region, and secures resources and approaches to sustain the change. 

Our Foundational Principles:

The Sierra Fund’s signature programs to build resilient headwater ecosystems, environmentally healthy communities, and a region with strong capacity to face the future rely on the tools of science, stewardship, environmental justice, and policy advocacy.
