Sierra Nevada Grassroots Directory

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.

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

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: grassroots@pclfoundation.org.

The Sierra Nevada Grassroots Directory is the culmination of a joint effort by Foundation staff, including Jason Avina, Justin Saydell, Audrey Tucker, Barbara Byrne, René Guerrero, Melanie Schlotterbeck, and Traci Sheehan. The PCL Foundation would also like to thank those groups which made the conservation stories possible.

Special thanks to the Sierra Nevada Alliance for their continued help and support, and to all the wonderful grassroots organizations and the individuals who have contributed their valuable time not only to the compilation of the Sierra Nevada Grassroots Directory, but to their continued efforts towards the betterment of the environment.
