CEO Elizabeth “Izzy” Martin will highlight The Sierra Fund’s newly released strategic plan, “A Platform for Action,” and our upcoming conference in May at CSU Sacramento, during a presentation for the Sierra Nevada Chapter of the Sierra Club at their public meeting on Thursday, March 30 at 6:30 pm at Seaman’s Lodge in Nevada City. Martin’s talk, titled “Restoring Ecosystem and Community Resiliency in the Sierra Nevada,” will give a historical account of how the Gold Rush shaped our region, and its lasting ecological footprint from the Sierra to the Sea.
Martin will introduce the work of The Sierra Fund to address the legacy impacts of mining, including our planned activities over the next five years using science and advocacy to “save the Sierra.” Izzy will discuss how our fourth biennial conference Reclaiming the Sierra 2017: Headwater Resiliency will set the stage for re-envisioning headwater management in California to benefit ecosystems and communities in the face of climate change and historic disturbance, and offer avenues for the community to get involved in TSF’s work and vision for a resilient Sierra.
