The Sierra Fund and the Sierra Nevada Alliance are again sponsoring Sierra Day in the Capitol TOMORROW, Tuesday, May 6.  Co-sponsors include Alpine Watershed Group, Ebbetts Pass Forest Watch, El Dorado Irrigation District, Mountain Meadows Conservancy, and Planning and Conservation League. 

Please join us for a reception in the afternoon at which we will honor Sierra Nevada Conservancy Executive Officer Jim Branham (on behalf of all the staff) and Chair Mike Chrisman (on behalf of the Board) for their efficient design and implementation of the new Sierra Nevada Conservancy grant program. 

Citizen lobbyists will meet at Westminster Presbyterian Church at 10:00 am for training and lunch before spending the afternoon:

–  Seeking support for the Sierra Nevada Conservancy proposed budget of $21.7 million, including $17 million for grant programs; and

–  Educating our legislators about the need for public investment in the Sierra, and distributing our beautiful conservation project portfolios with pictures and maps of projects that need funding.

Meet us between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. at the outdoor patio at the Pyramid Alehouse, 1029 K Street, to celebrate the Sierra. This reception will include light refreshments and a no-host bar.
