Much thanks to everyone who joined the Center for Sierra Nevada Conservation’s effort to protect the Jones Fork of Silver Creek. It was a privilege to spend a day in the company of such hardworking, knowledgeable, and good hearted folks. The fish, frogs, and forest thank you!
Join forces with CSNC volunteers on Tuesday October 27th for a day of giving and healing to our Forest.
The Center for Sierra Nevada Conservation and volunteers will be decommissioning and restoring an unauthorized vehicle route that is directly impacting the Jone’s Fork of Silver Creek in the Crystal Basin area of the Eldorado National Forest.
We will be covering tracks with on-site mulch and leaf litter and placing woody debris to prevent the conveyance of soil from the hillside into the stream. We will also be doing a little trash removal from a makeshift creekside campsite.

A fragile and abused lava cap meadow has a new chance to bloom thanks to the hard work of CSNC volunteers. The work was carried out over two days- the first day the top of an ecologically disasterous illegal OHV route was closed off and restored, and the second day the lower end of the route was closed. The forest thanks you!
Here’s a link to a short video on u-tube documenting the Indian Valley Restoration project a few years back- and CSNC was there!
CSNC has a new look. Our new website is updated with a blog feature so that contributors can share information and news about events, activities, meetings, concerns, and any other thing you can think of that might impact the ecology and beauty of our Sierra Nevada and El Dorado environment.
