About Us

Our mission is to engage land managers, scientists, and other stakeholders in the conservation of ecosystems in the Sierra Nevada, and to protect and restore the unparalleled beauty and natural values of the region. Formed in 1996, we lead a coalition of conservation stakeholders who actively provide feedback to the U.S. Forest Service on the best practices to manage forest lands to protect biodiversity and to maintain ecological integrity. The integration of science into forest management is a focus of our work on the national forests of this bioregion. Staffed by ecologists and experts in public policy, SFL is consistently called on by agency decision makers, scientists and our conservation partners to offer our perspectives and recommendations about resource management and conservation.

Sierra Forest Legacy is a project of the Tides Center.
