Sierra Forest Legacy
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.
