TSF receives grant from Cal/EPA Environmental Justice Program

The Sierra Fund is pleased to announce that we have received funding from the Cal/EPA Environmental Justice Small Grants Program to increase awareness of Sierra anglers about mercury in fish.  Working with South Yuba River Citizens League, Wolf Creek Community Alliance, and local volunteers, we will lead a community effort that will result in state-issued fish consumption guidelines posted at public access points of popular fishing lakes and reservoirs.

The heart of this project will be a volunteer “Post-It” day organized by SYRCL, scheduled for Saturday, July 11.  More details will be available very soon.  In the meantime, hold the date and we hope you can make it!
