TSF is gearing up for a “Sierra Day in the Capitol” to increase the visibility of the headwaters. Sierra Day will take place Tuesday, February 4, 2020, in Sacramento. The Sierra Fund is sponsoring the event alongside partners at the Sierra Nevada Alliance, Sierra Business Council, and the Sierra Water Work Group.
The program includes a morning of educational presentations followed by a training session on how to speak with legislators and their staff over a “no host” lunch. Teams will visit with legislators, legislative staff and key administrative leaders over the afternoon to highlight the climate resiliency and funding needs of the headwater region with a focus on the development of a climate resilience bond for the November 2020 statewide ballot. The day will end with an informal reception at a restaurant nearby, providing an opportunity to share information and experiences in a convivial atmosphere.
Confirmed speakers include Assemblywoman Megan Dahle, Nancy Vogel, Water Portfolio author, Jennifer Montgomery, Governor’s Forest Management Task Force, Paul Mason, Pacific Forest Trust, and Rich Gordon, California Forestry Association.
