Sierra Nevada Conservancy

The Sierra Nevada Region provides a wealth of vitally important benefits to the people of California including more than 60 percent of the State's developed water supply, habitat for an incredibly diverse range of wildlife, renewable energy generation, and carbon sequestration, just to name a few. In addition, millions of people from California and around the world come to the Sierra to recreate and experience the beauty and grandeur of its iconic landscapes. Unfortunately, these benefits are at risk and action must be taken to protect and enhance them. Follow the links below to learn more.

California AML Prioritization Tool

The Sierra Nevada Conservancy partnering with the Department of Conservation and the University of California, Davis, and members of the multi-agency California Abandoned Mine Lands Agency Group (CAMLAG) have developed Phase 1 of the California Abandoned Mine Lands Prioritization Tool (CAMPT). Phase 1 CAMPT provides a solid foundation for the next phase: full implementation of a statewide, multi-agency accessible tool.


The Sierra Nevada Conservancy is a member of the state's Tree Mortality Task Force. Local governments, landowners, and the general public can visit the Task Force's website for additional information and resources. Find out more...
