The Center for Sierra Nevada Conservation has been a tireless voice for John Muir’s “Range of Light” for 30 years, working for sound management of our public lands and enlightened government land use policies. The CSNC Board of Directors and our members have worked countless hours to make sure land managers and politicians do not overlook environmental values when making land use decisions.
Our interests and work include recreation, forestry practices, meadow restoration, removal of invasive plants and land use issues. A key goal is the right-sizing of the National Forest road system. When the Forest Service or County proposes a project that threatens wildlife or wildlife habitat, we speak up for the voiceless. When projects threaten meadows, mountain streams and aquatic habitat, we advocate for protecting water and fish. When our communities are faced with incompatible land use projects, we organize to protect our rural lifestyle.
Since 2014 our primary work has been the restoration of damage on the Eldorado National Forest from unauthorized vehicle use off designated routes. In cooperation with the Eldorado National Forest, and funded through grants, our full-time 3-person crew, including two AmeriCorps members, monitors, identifies damage, and performs repairs. Several times a year, volunteers join us to help with our projects. These repairs help protect sensitive plant populations, wildlife habitat and water quality.
