Reclaiming the Sierra

Sierra Nevada Conservancy

The Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC) is a founding sponsor of Reclaiming the Sierra.  SNC is a California state agency created by bi-partisan legislation (AB 2600) and signed into law by Governor Schwarzenegger in 2004. The SNC was created with the understanding that the environmental, economic and social well-being of the Sierra Nevada and its communities are closely linked and that the Region and the State of California would benefit from an organization providing a strategic direction. The SNC Region, made up of all or part of 22 counties covering over 25 million acres, is one of the most significant natural and biologically diverse regions in the world. The Sierra Nevada constitutes about 25 percent of California’s land area and is the state’s principal watershed, supplying 65 percent of the developed water supply to residents, agriculture, and other businesses/industries across the state.
