Most northern California hikers love to spend high-quality hiking time backpacking or day hiking Sierra Nevada trails. We also want the region to thrive and stay healthy, and to that end you should consider attending the Sierra Nevada Alliance Annual Conference in South Lake Tahoe on August 27th and 28th, 2010:
The Sierra is a foundation of California and Nevada’s prosperity – supplying clean water, energy, and recreational refuge to millions. In the face of a growing population, changing climate, and degrading natural resources the Sierra Nevada will need to be resilient. We will need to adapt to changes we cannot predict and adopt smarter policies and programs than our past. A key to our resiliency will be strong local partnerships so we may tackle challenges together as communities. Innovative and fun strategies, cost-effective new approaches and a commitment to stewardship can help us protect our most precious region – the Sierra.
So please join us for two days of inspiring speakers, informative workshops, fun field trips, and terrific networking as we work to keep the Sierra resilient.
It’s $35 for Friday and $40 for Saturday if you’re a nonmember, but you can join and get a significant discount.
