This organizational report – our first – outlines how The Sierra Fund has worked to achieve our vision of a Sierra Nevada protected and restored for future generations. Among our notable victories, The Sierra Fund has:
• Sponsored successful bipartisan legislation that created the Sierra Nevada Conservancy to protect and restore the region’s 25 million acres;
• Protected more than 30,000 acres of working ranches, farmlands, critical wildlands and wild rivers by developing over $50 million in new public conservation dollars;
• Leveraged more than $30 million in private dollars for land and river acquisition and conservation throughout the Sierra; and
• Made targeted grants, loans and programmatic investments of more than $1 million so that organizations working to protect the region could effectively utilize the full toolbox of conservation strategies – community organizing and education, collaboration, regulatory reform, legislative advocacy, and when necessary, litigation.
