The Sierra Fund works on a variety of issues pertinent to the Sierra Nevada region, unified by our mission to bring resources to restore resiliency in the region.
Issues The Sierra Fund is currently focusing on include:
- Legacy impacts of historic mining in the Sierra – The problem and the solution.
- Human Health – Invisible health threats are associated with abandoned mines—arsenic, lead and asbestos in processed mine rock, and mercury in fish.
- Mercury in the Sierra – How did mercury get here? And what to do about it.
