A broad array of interests from within and outside the Sierra Nevada have come together to sponsor Sierra Day in the Capitol this year. This special day is dedicated to raising awareness among members of the Legislature and legislative staff about the Sierra Nevada and the importance of the region to the entire state. This is accomplished through meetings with individual members and their staff, a display outside the Governor’s Office featuring beautiful original works by Sierra Nevada photographers, and a Sierra Day reception at the nearby Stanford Mansion.
Seventeen organizations are involved with Sierra Day in the Capitol this year, representing landowner, environmental, business, and recreational interests. All agree that the well-being of the region–which covers one-quarter of the State–is vital to the well-being of California, because of the many benefits it provides.
In addition to receiving information about the many benefits the Sierra Nevada region provides to California, members of the Legislature and legislative staff will hear about how investment in region not only helps to safeguard and enhance those benefits, but also creates green jobs. They are also being invited to participate in a number of tours and events occurring in the Sierra Nevada this year.
