Reclaiming the Sierra 2017: Headwater Resiliency will provide a forum for leaders in science and policy to collaborate on a vision of headwater management to promote the resiliency of natural and human resources in California’s altered landscapes and beyond.


Since 2006, nonprofit organization The Sierra Fund has worked to address the ongoing environmental, cultural and human health impacts of historic mining in the Sierra Nevada. We support organizations and communities by increasing public and private funding, advocating for policy changes and bringing intellectual resources that build capacity to restore and protect the resiliency of California’s headwaters.
