The Sierra Nevada Grassroots Directory is an informational resource intended for residents and organizations who wish to become involved in the protection and preservation of the Sierra. The document explores issues prevalent in each of the 23 California and Nevada counties found in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.
The Sierra Nevada Grassroots Directory is meant to be an inspirational guide for individuals concerned about particular environmental issues in their community, county, or region, and hopes to provide information useful in combating these issues.
The Planning and Conservation League Foundation invites you, the public, to contribute or amend listed information in the document as you see fit. The Sierra Nevada Grassroots Directory is not only a testament to the resiliency of the natural world; it is also a work in progress.
HOW TO USE THE DIRECTORY
The Sierra Nevada Grassroots Directory is organized alphabetically by county and provides information for each Sierra Nevada county about environmental non-profit organizations, government agencies, and bodies with administrative or policy-making duties in the region.
For each county, we include:
- basic county statistics
- a story about the environmental accomplishments of local environmental organizations and concerned residents
- a list of environmental issues particular to the county
- a list of local environmental grassroots organizations active in the county, including their Particular focus and contact information
- a list of public agencies and officials
HOW TO UPDATE THE DIRECTORY
This Directory is constantly evolving and PCLF considers it a work in progress. Everyone is encouraged to make additions and amendments to the Directory by emailing changes or updates to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
